The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties is getting ready for The 2014 Humanitarian Gala, to be held at Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale. It is the 30th Annual Humanitarian Gala.

The Gala will take place Saturday April 26th at 6:00pm. The event is one of the most anticipated in the area and is an important night of fundraising and a fun night as well. The evening will feature a special spotlight on Honoree Tom Donovan, President and Publisher of the Asbury Park Press.

Also honored will be Jim Filip, restauranteur and FoodBank Board Member Emeritus, and The Marowitz family from Frank's Big and Tall. Patrick J. Strucke is this year's Jr. Humanitarian.
