First Annual OCBA Beach Bash a Huge Success

The weather cooperated and so did the town of Seaside Heights as more than 100 people turned out for our Beach Party. It truly was a group effort:

  • Great food (thanks to Jennifer McMahon of Perlmutter Shop Rites)
  • Great Beverages (thanks to Donny Sanders of Spirits Unlimited)
  • Great Bonfire (thanks to lumberjack Chuck Laing, hole digger Mark Kotzas and fire tender Steve Pelligrinelli)
  • Great Decorations (thanks to Donna Barnett of Creative Changes Salon)
  • Great Planning by Steve Pollack and Angie Lombardi to make the event a highlight of the year.

It was wonderful to see everyone in their casual attire. It was great to see so many kiddies running around, knowing these second and third generation OCBAers will be future business owners. And, it was terrific to be among friends and business associates who all call this wonderful slice of NJ home!

The fitting climax to the evening was the announcement by President Jim Everett that Chuck Laing was overwhelmingly selected as our OCBA Member of the Year. Chuck has served as OCBA President for two consecutive terms and has been a member of the organization for more than 30 years.

Donny Sanders, of Spirits Unlimited brought an outstanding assortment of beers and wines to the outing—along with his excellent suggestions

Dr. Steve Pollack of Pollack Health & Wellness, organized the event down to the finest detail, including filling the tiki torches
