A very special event is coming to the beach at McLoone's Pier House.

The 10th Annual Holiday Express Sunset Benefit Clambake will be held Sunday, Sept. 17th, 4 - 8 pm, on the beach at McLoone's Pier House in Long Branch to benefit Tim McLoone's Holiday Express.

Each Christmas season, Holiday Express visits the mentally and physically disabled, the isolated, those in addiction and recovery programs, the poor and the homeless, and children with serious illnesses. It was established by Tim McLoone in 1993 and is a non-profit organization with 2,500 volunteers including 150 professional rock, jazz, folk, gospel, and pop musicians.

Holiday Express delivers music, food, gifts, financial support, and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year.

This year's Clambake will honor Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist Darlene Love, who recorded the hit single "All Alone on Christmas" for the movie Home Alone 2, which is the signature theme song for Holiday Express and performed at every Holiday Express event.

The Clambake will be a live and silent auction with amazing items including tickets to area sporting events, designer clothing and jewelry, and dinner packages to the shore's finest restaurants. Dress is casual and the Holiday Express Band will provide entertainment.

Holiday Express founder Tim McLoone says he truly believes the lyric "Nobody out to be alone on Christmas" and that's why he will be doing so many events this holiday season. This year Holiday Express is celebrating its 25th anniversary and will be visiting a record-setting 100 locations in 49 days. Proceeds from the Clambake will improve the quality of life for the 25,000 adults and children being served by Holiday Express during the 2017 holiday season.
