The 9th Annual Pink Ribbon Benefit takes place this weekend, with the proceeds going to a local charity that is very close to my heart.

This Saturday, November 22nd, head to Connolly Station on Main St. in Belmar from 2-5 p.m. for music, food, entertainment, a 50/50 raffle, and the chance to score awesome prizes in the Chinese auction!

All proceeds will go to Mary's Place by the Sea, a 501(c)3 non-profit respite home based in Ocean Grove where women with cancer can rest, find support, and get incredible treatments and therapies.

Tickets are $25 at the door and kids under 12 are free. (If you can't make it out on Saturday, consider donating online!)

A hot and cold buffet will be open after 3 p.m., and the kids will enjoy face painting and some special characters (Anyone want to meet the Snow Queen?).

It's an easy to way to support an amazing local organization, all while having a good time!

Additionally, the Shore to Help Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving Day in Monmouth Beach will also benefit Mary's Place. For more info on that, click HERE.
