Given recent devastation to the Jersey Shore and surrounding communities, a decision has been made by Sheraton Eatontown Hotel to cancel our 23rd Annual Festival of Trees Fundraiser scheduled for December 11th, 2012.

We are working to refocus fundraising efforts toward the immediate need for restoration and recovery in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. A formal release will detail our plans to give back to the community with our 2012 event shortly.

Each and every one of us have been both personally and professionally affected by Sandy. The stories we’ve heard have been heartbreaking. The friends we have made along the way have been the silver lining in this life changing experience.

You, our Jersey Shore friends, neighbors and families are in our thoughts and prayers during this challenging time. Thank you for understanding our decision to cancel the Festival this year. Be safe and Happy Holidays to you and yours.
