Friday night, I was honored to host the Humanitarian Gala for the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties at Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale.It was a beautiful night of generosity.

The night was a tribute to this year's honorees, Leslie Barlow from Barlow Flower Farm, Peter Cancro, Founder and CEO of Jersey Mike's Subs and the youth honoree, Sarah Abdelaziz. Each gave a brilliant speech about the importance of giving to the FoodBank and the importance of our commitment to our community.

It was also an evening to realize how much hard work goes into running the FoodBank and just how amazing all the staff and volunteers are. It' a true team effort and a labor of love at the FoodBank and I urge everyone to take a minute to find out how you can help. Please visit www.foodbankmoc.org  for more information. Thank you for your generosity!
