Bring Back the Beach Bash | Ocean County NJ Event Photographer
I am a very proud resident of Chadwick Beach, NJ. Since Hurricane Sandy, many of the towns residents have come together to do some amazing things. “United to Rebuild” has become the slogan of Chadwick Beach as of late last year. All over town you can see people sporting the shirts, sweatshirts, stickers and hats. I wonderful group of locals formed the “Chadwick Beach Restoration Fund” and have raised thousands and thousands of dollars by selling these items, as well as, throwing a very successful evening of dinner, music and auction prizes at the Waterview Pavillion in Belmar, NJ. The turnout was amazing and everyone had a great time. I was extremely thankful that I was able to be a part of it and give back in some small way. Many of us lost everything that day and were away from our homes without control for weeks with limited information. It was an extremely hard winter for our town and I am so glad that this weekend (Easter weekend) has brought sunshine, warmth and many people back down the shore to start again and rebuild their damaged properties. As sad as it has been over the last few months, moving back to a deserted town, today was a really beautiful day. I can’t wait to see everyone back in town and laughing again, like they were at the Beach Bash!
