If you were wondering if the 14th Annual Holiday Express Sunset Benefit Clambake was still on this year the answer is YES!  (I mean we don't want to make Santa mad do we?)  It will be in person and on the beach!  It is all happening on Sunday, September 19th from 4-9 pm at McLoone's Pier House in Long Branch.  It's an event you and your friends don't want to miss!

Listen to Shannon Holly mornings on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.

This benefit is not only a spectacular evening out, it also funds The Holiday Express, a non-profit organization comprised of 2,500 volunteers, including 150 professional rock, jazz, folk, gospel and pop musicians.  This year Holiday Express will be visiting 100 locations during the holiday season. Proceeds from the Clambake will improve the quality of life for the 27,000 adults and children being served by Holiday Express during the 2021 holiday season.  Holiday Express visits the mentally and physically challenged, the isolated, individuals in addiction and recovery programs, the poor and the homeless and children with serious illnesses.

It is such a wonderful cause that the event is top notch!  The cost is $275 per guest and it includes a premium open bar and a lavish buffet including lobster, filet and a raw bar! Does it get any better than this?

Holiday Express Founder, Tim McLoone said this event is ready to be back...

Holiday Express is thrilled to be holding the Clambake in person this year. It has been way too long since we have been able to see the people who have supported us even during these unprecedented times.  The Holiday Express Band can’t wait to play to a live audience and we promise this year’s event is going to be amazing

There is so much to win with this event too!  There's a silent auction with tickets to area sporting events, designer clothing and jewelry, vacation destinations, and dinner packages at the shore’s finest restaurants.  Dress is casual and the Holiday Express Band will provide entertainment.

This amazing and generous charity was started by Mr. Tim McLoone back in 1993.  For sponsorship questions or more information please visit www.holidayexpress.org or call 732-544-8010.  Cheers!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
