Borough official’s say the total taken in to replace its Sandy-destroyed one mile boardwalk is over $507,275 with 4,747 supporters contributing an average $100 dollars to the campaign.

The Buy a Board campaign has seven donation levels from a “Beach Bum” at $25 to a “Big Kahuna” at $5,000. In a press release Mayor Matt Doherty says



What an amazing response. Belmar Boardwalk supporters have come forward to raise more than half a million dollars in just over 3 months. Thank you to everyone who has supported this effort – we will have your boardwalk back for you come Memorial Day.”

Doherty says they’ve also seen a 47% increase in seasonal beach badge sales with 3,037 badges sold so far for the 2013 season.

Belmar Officials announced earlier this week that all the pilings are in place and the timetable to have the boardwalk complete before the Memorial Day weekend is on schedule.
