"Tie One On at the Shore," will host their sixth annual benefit on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Calloway's Restaurant in Eagleswood.
The benefit will go to Mary's Place By the Sea, an Ocean Grove-based holistic center for women with cancer, according to Kim Murphy, of Barnegat. Murphy said her sister, Christine Massaro, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, and fought courageously until she succumbed to the disease in 2011.
"Every day of five years she was fighting this disease, but for the weekend at Mary's Place, she was being pampered," Murphy said in a press release about the event. "She felt like a celebrity. What better way to honor her, than to give back to the organization that gave so much to her, and made her so happy."
Mary's Place by the Sea is run by service volunteers including nutritionists, oncological masseuses, yoga instructors and more.
Michele Gannon, founder of Mary's Place by the Sea, noted: "Although we only knew Christine a short time, her visit with us at Mary's Place left an indelible impression on us. We realized that we can make a difference with each and every guest we care for during their long journey with cancer."
The event will feature door prizes, basket auctions, vendors, food and drinks, face painting, tattoos, sand art, discounted amusement park tickets, and more. Music is being provided by Mushmouth, The Rock Lobsters, The Impulsives, and Sara O'Brien.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, children 12 and younger are free
