One of the many perks of working in radio is having the opportunity to give back to the community.

I hope you can join me this spring for an incredible night of fun to benefit a great organization!

Thursday, May 4th, I'll have the honor of hosting the OceanCares Foundation Spring Gift Auction at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center in Toms River.

Doors open for the event at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $35, and will include a buffet dinner, a door prize raffle entry and a sheet of tier 1 tickets for the auction.

There will also be a couple of fun ambush makeovers provided by Salon Milan of Brick!

More importantly, it's all to support a great cause.

The OceanCares Foundation supports Ocean Mental Health Services, which helps Ocean County residents struggling with mental illness.

They offer programs for people of all ages, from children to seniors, and cover issues ranging from anger management and depression, to addiction and homelessness, to the extensive needs of those with more serious mental illnesses.

Thanks to the money raised by the OceanCares Foundation, OceanMHS is able to assist  program participants in many ways, including: paying for users' college tuition, automotive repairs, and/or basic daily necessities; offering special treatments like equine, pet, and art therapy programs; and providing day trips which help with socialization skills.

It all helps to enhance their experience with OceanMHS.

I'm glad to be able to help out with this event, and hope to see you there! To purchase your tickets, click HERE.
