Liz and I were so proud to be a part of the 2nd Annual Meatball Gala last week, with proceeds going to Project Graduation in Wall.

One of the things that makes me so proud is the ongoing generosity of the people of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. I see it time and time again. Whenever there is a need and a great cause our true Jersey spirit shines, and the Meatball Gala was no exception.

We were just informed that the evening raised over $6000. That's great news for the students of Wall High School, since Project Graduation's goal is to provide an all-night drug and alcohol free celebration as graduation approaches.

A big thank you to Jo Schloeder and everyone who made this great event possible and such a huge success. And thanks, as always for your incredible generosity! Liz will be posting a list of all of this year's winners a little later, so check it out, and thanks to all who participated.
