SEA GIRT — The Holly Club of Sea Girt is appealing to borough residents for support after the club’s fundraisers were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The club typically raises money through its annual beach badge raffle, the sale of coloring books on the boardwalk, luncheons and other fundraising events — all of which were stifled by the pandemic.
“Our wings were clipped in terms of fundraising, but we want to continue the beautification of Sea Girt and give scholarships to local high school students and the things we’ve always done,” president of the club, Lynn Ward, said.
The club was unable to take to the boardwalk to sell coloring books this year, however, books are still available for purchase.
The coloring book, which contains 60 pages of popular scenes and historic locations from Sea Girt, Manasquan and Spring Lake, can be purchased on the club’s website. Books are also available at BookTowne in Manasquan and Life is Good in Spring Lake.
Ms. Ward said the club recently sent out a letter to residents in an effort to solicit donations. The letter also details the Holly Club’s involvement in the community, and the many programs and projects its members take on, which would benefit from donations.
