Fair seas and a gentle breeze made for a sold-out boat of American Littoral Society supporters on Friday, September 16.
The 4th annual Littorally Local Sunset Cruise set sail on Sandy Hook Bay with well over 100 people on board for a night of fun, oysters from the Barnegat Oyster Collective, beer from Ross Brewing, and coastal conservation conversation.
Since 1961, the Littoral Society has been caring for the coast in New Jersey, New York and beyond. We see the beauty and feel the energy that draws people to coastal communities.
In addition to the cruise, which began with dockside cocktails in the Atlantic Highlands Marina aboard Teal Cruises' Festiva, the event included an online auction which concluded on Saturday, September 17. Proceeds from the cruise and auction benefit the Littoral Society.
Sponsors for the event included: Kristen and John Hall, Heather and Danon Robinson, Susan and Ty Olson, the OceanFirst Foundation, PSEG, Tally Blumberg (president of the Society's board of trustees), Tito's Vodka, Muller Insurance, Lionfish Divers, Builders' General, Victor Maisano, the Bayshore Family of Companies, Cumberland Mutual Insurance, Roots and Wings Giving Fund, Kate Murray, and Cindy Zipf (Littoral Society board member and Executive Director of Clean Ocean Action).
