Ocean Township Mayor's Ball

“What A Night!!! We packed the Deal Golf and Country Club, on May 21st for an amazing evening of food, drinks, dancing, selfies, bourbon and champagne tasting, cigar rolling and auctions.... This incredible event raised over $40,000.00 for The Mya Lin Terry Foundation and the Community Hope Fund of Ocean Township. We were honored to be selected this year, as recipients of the proceeds, for such a wonderful event, within a wonderful community.

We were equally honored to share in the presentation of awards to the Mayor's Employee of the Year, Hank Kliem, Ocean Township Public Works Department; Business Development Award recipients, Seaview Square LLC; and the Mayor's Lifetime Achievement Award, our very own Board of Trustee Member, and Mya's Pop Pop, Bevin Irvin.
