LONG BRANCH-The ninth annual Holiday Express Sunset Benefit Clambake will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 18 on the beach at McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch.
The clambake, which is sponsored by Shore Point Distributing Company, will cost $250 per guest and includes a premium open bar and a lavish buffet that will include lobster, filet and raw bar. Dress is casual and the Holiday Express Band will provide entertainment.
The Clambake will be honoring volunteer Peggy Weil, President of Travel Leaders of Neptune, who has been a staunch supporter of Holiday Express. There will be a live and silent auction with items donated by many generous individuals and companies, including tickets to area sporting events, designer clothing and jewelry, and dinner packages at the shore’s finest restaurants.
Proceeds from the Clambake will improve the quality of life for the 24,000 adults and children being served by Holiday Express at 90 charity events during the 2016 holiday season, including individuals with mental and physical challenges, veterans, individuals in addiction programs, those facing financial difficulties, and children with serious illnesses.
Founded in 1993 by Little Silver resident Tim McLoone, the non-profit group, Holiday Express delivers music, food, gifts and financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the Holiday season and throughout the year. The organization is comprised of 2,000 volunteers, including more than 150 professional musicians.
