• Summer Celebration – THANK YOU!


    AND – Save the Date: Summer Celebration Monday, June 8, 2020!!!

    The Jersey Shore Partnership Foundation hosted its annual SUMMER CELEBRATION on Monday evening June 10. A cloudy evening with intermittent drizzle did not deter guests from joining in the festivities under a tent adjacent to Sandy Hook Bay. The event creates awareness of and support for the Jersey Shore Partnership’s advocacy efforts to ensure adequate funding for protection and preservation of New Jersey’s beaches.  Photos of the event can be found here.
