LINCROFT – An evening of Irish-themed libation, food, and fun is planned in support of new boats and training equipment for the nationally ranked Christian Brothers Academy Crew team on March 16 at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck.
Just eight years old, the now 70 strong, nationally ranked team and 2011 Scholastic National Lightweight 4+ Champion seeks to improve its competitive position amongst the almost 600 other high school rowing programs nationally by adding $130,000 in new training equipment and boats to their young but highly successful rowing program.
In order to add to the ranks of the more than 500 young men who have benefited from the camaraderie, hard work, discipline and competitive spirit engendered by the sport of rowing and Coach Scott Belford’s tutelage, the fundraiser is scheduled for 7 p.m. to midnight at the golf club.
The ticket price is set at $125 and includes passed appetizers, buffet, open bar, specialty drinks, and entertainment provided by The Pat Roddy Band. There also will be a 50/50 raffle and live and silent auctions that will include such items as a trip to Napa Valley, a one-week vacation in the Cayman Islands, a golf package at Trump National Golf Club, and the use of a 100-foot yacht. Local celebrity radio host Big Joe Henry from NJ 101.5 will serve as the master of ceremonies.
Donations will be gratefully accepted and sponsorships are available.
Tickets are available by contacting Kim O. Clauss at email@example.com or by calling her at 732-706-3430.
