Making an Angel to Set a Record
It’s not too late to be part of history and at the same time help others as tomorrow on the beach in Seaside Park you can help mark the fifth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy by simply making a sand angel.
Sponsored by OceanFirst Bank the goal is to break the Guinness Book World Record for “Most Sand Angels Made Simultaneously” which currently is 1,387 set on a lakefront beach in Michigan this past June. As of a couple of days ago just over 1,100 people had registered for tomorrow’s event but with a beautiful weather forecast, there is reason to be optimistic that last-minute registrations will put this effort over the top.
It costs $5 to register and if you’re among the first 1,500 you get a free tee shirt.
All proceeds will be split between the Ocean County Long Recovery Group which is still helping those impacted by Sandy and the Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services. In addition both OceanFirst Foundation and New Jersey Natural Gas will donate $10 each for the first 1,500 who register to those two charitable organizations.
You can register today at oceanfirstangels.com or tomorrow morning in the parking lot area near where our boardwalk studios are located in Seaside Park. Believe me you won’t miss it. Come be a part of history!
The 8th weekend of the high school football season is highlighted by what is for all intents and purposes a Class “A South” elimination game as Central visits Brick tonight in our Jersey Mike’s Game of the Week.
Both teams have one loss in the division as does surging Brick Memorial so tonight’s winner remains in contention for at least a share of the championship. Tonight’s Golden Eagles-Green Dragons game can be heard on 92.7 WOBM and 1160/1310AM with kickoff at 7 p.m.
Also, tonight is the 46th meeting between Toms River South and Toms River North with the Indians hosting the matchup of slumping teams who each come in with just one victory. South leads the overall series but the visiting Mariners have dominated in recent years, winning 14 of the last 15. This one is always special!
