I stepped outside the Headliner last night during Pointsettia Bash, and I saw the crew from Emmanuel Cancer Foundation loading a truck full of toys that so many of you donated on your way into the show. It is a heartwarming moment for me each year and it never ceases to amaze me. Time after time and year after year, you, the residents of the Jersey Shore, are asked to help out so many charities. And year after year you come through.

Nothing stops you either. We've had everything from bad weather to bad economy, but it doesn't matter. You always come through. It's such an honor to get to live at the Jersey Shore and an added bonus to live among the most generous people in the world. I just wanted to take a minute to say it doesn't go unnoticed and to say thank you.
