This summer, 94.3 The Point and Irwin Cars in Freehold are teaming up to “Pay It Forward.” We’re visiting local non-profits and charities to spread the good word and lend a helping hand. Over the weekend, I helped out at the Brick Children's Community Theatre's fundraiser breakfast.

The BCCT is non-profit, community theater group dedicated to the children of Ocean and Monmouth counties. Established in 1992, the BCCT has spawned great reviews with much interest and a dedicated following from the local community. They were proud and honored to have been voted "Best Community Theatre in Ocean County" Reader's Choice Award by The Asbury Park Press in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

In days, this awesome group of kids and adult volunteers will put on a production of Shrek The Musical at Brick High School.


I was honored to do something I dare say has never been done before, by anyone. I called bingo while wearing Shrek ears.

A lot of money was raised and everyone had a great time.

94.3 The Point and Matt Ryan are looking to help local charities this summer and we need your help!

Tell us about your local charity. If you’re chosen, Matt and the Point Crew will come to your organization and help out for a day. We’ll throw a Pay It Forward wrap party at Rella’s Tavern for all the involved charities and one group will receive $1,000 from Irwin Cars.
