‘A Night at the Derby’ Anticipated for Hunger Relief Dinner/Auction

Feb 20, 2019

Save the date for A Night at the Derby, the 24th annual Hunger Relief dinner and auction, Wednesday, May 1 at The Mainland at Holiday Inn in Manahawkin.

“Experience the hats, horses, jockeys, juleps, flavors and Southern hospitality of Kentucky Derby!” invite the posters that are now out to announce this year’s theme.

The Hunger Foundation of Southern Ocean (also known as the Southern Ocean County Community Foundation) holds the charitable fundraising event. Since 1995, the nonprofit foundation has raised more than $1 million, which has been donated to local food pantries in Southern Ocean County.

With a goal of creating a hunger-free community, the all-volunteer foundation also raises awareness about the need for hunger relief in our own neighborhoods.

“Be sure to attend in Derby attire,” say organizers – another reason to start thinking about the date now.

Tickets are $200 per person. They can be purchased online at the website HFOSO.org or by calling 609-789-5570. If mailing a check, send to: HFOSO, 297 Route 72 West, #270 Suite 35, Manahawkin, N.J. 08050.  —M.S.
