Today: Point Boro Project Grad. Social
Event at Marlin's to raise money for the alcohol-free, post-grad party
A Point Borough Project Graduation Adult Social will be held today at Marlin's Cafe to raise money for activities for the alcohol-free, supervised Project Graduation party for graduates at The Atlantic Club.
The fundraiser is from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sun. (Feb. 24) at Marlin's Cafe, Route 35, Point Pleasant Beach.
"This is a great time for the adults to get together to have some fun socializing and raise money for a great cause," said Nancy Pazienza of the Project Graduation Committee. "Everyone is welcome to come. The support is greatly appreciated."
Tickets are $20 ahead of time and $25 at the door, with a buffet included, and separate cash bar. There will also be a gift auction and 50-50.
"Last year we had over 230 people attend the event so we are hoping to fill the place up," Pazienza said.
Project Graduation is a supervised, alcohol and drug free event at The Atlantic Club in Wall following the high school graduation in June. The idea is to give graduates a safe, fun place to go so they're not using drugs, alcohol or driving under the influence.
"At this time," Pazienza said, "we have enough money raised to cover the cost of the Atlantic Club itself, but now need to raise the money for the activities to have fun and entertain the seniors like the mechanical bull, DJ, sumo wrestling and the velcro wall.
"The McKennas, owners of Marlin's, have generously donated their restaurant and food for the fundraiser," Pazienza added.
For tickets, call Donna Sutphen at 732-330-2647 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to needing donations, the Project Graduation Committee also needs more volunteers and support. For more information about Project Graduation and other upcoming events, click here.
