Raising Waves: 2022 Asbury Park Beach Badge Fundraiser

Event to take place at Asbury Lanes from 6-10pm

[ASBURY PARK, NJ] - On Monday, May 16th  the Asbury Park Beach Badge Fundraiser will take place at Asbury Lanes. The event is inspired by the AP Community Beach Badge Fund, whose mission, since 2018, has been to provide beach badges to those who otherwise could not afford them and to help prevent potentially dangerous after-hours, unguarded swimming.

The fundraiser is being produced by Ian Gray of the Ocean Avenue Stompers, Sarah Hayes of Asbury Park Distilling Co., and Kelsey Gibson + Natalie Hazel of Asbury Lanes, The Asbury and Asbury Ocean Club. Proceeds from the ticket sales and live auction will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Asbury Park / Monmouth County and Trinity Church. Sponsors include Asbury Lanes, Asbury Park Distilling Co. Last Wave Brewing Company and Trixie's Fried Chicken.

Tickets are $10 and 100% of those ticket sales will go towards the fundraiser.
