Give the Seaside Heights Business Improvement District some credit for creating a unique event that on Sunday will hopefully bring people over the bridge and benefit a pair of charities.

It’s called “Taste of the Boulevard” where you can enjoy light bites and sips from some of the town’s most popular food places while walking down the boulevard. Just as appealing is the fact that all proceeds from ticket sales will go to CONTACT of Ocean & Monmouth County and Ocean’s Harbor House.

The way it works is: you purchase a ticket for $35 and choose one of three time slots to start your tasting at 1p.m., 4 p.m. or 7 p.m. (your ticket is only one for one of those times). You would pick up your event passport at Klee’s Bar and Grill on Sunday and that’s where it all begins.

Their sampling is expected to be Jambalaya with a taste of their house-made bread putting. Ohana Grill is a popular restaurant in Lavallette but they’ll be set up at Klee’s on Sunday serving New England clam chowder and a short rib ravioli. The tentative menu at the other boulevard participants:

Genevieve’s:  Lobster Bisque with a wild mushroom aranchini
PJ’s: Bacon-wrapped scallop over a corn back with a taste of their tiramisu.
Free Range:  Postina with porchetta and a duck egg
Hooks: House-made cheese balls, chicken wings and seasoned fries

Attendees must be 21 years old and drinks are extra.

Also, Heavy Reel Brewery will be open for sampling during the event and next door to them Spiaggia Arts will be offering unique coastal gifts for purchase. LePetit Garage will also host a pop-up shop between Klee’s and Genevieve’s featuring jewelry, clothing and gifts.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to CONTACT of Ocean & Monmouth Counties and Ocean’s Harbor House. The inaugural event is a partnership between the Seaside Heights BID and Extended Arms, a non-profit that raises money for the two charitable causes.
