Salvation Army International Food Extravaganza

The Ocean County Citadel of the Salvation Army will hold their 2nd Annual “International Food Extravaganza” on Monday, September 22nd at the American Legion Hall on Church Road in Toms River. The evening will not only feature an outstanding array of food from all over the world but will honor Toms River Mayor Thomas Kelaher, Ken Munroe and Ed Sunday.

Kelaher will receive the esteemed Community Service Award for his contributions to Toms River as a citizen and public servant. Munroe, who owns Shore Design Landscaping, will receive the prestigious William Booth Award given in honor of the spirit of the founder of the Salvation Army. Sunday, Vice President and General Manager of Gateway Toyota-Scion will receive the “Others” award for his on going support of others in the community.

The dinner is a major fundraiser for The Salvation Army and will help fund the many programs they run in the Ocean County area. For $75 per person you will also get to sample great cuisine from appetizers to deserts as last year’s inaugural event drew rave reviews.

For information on the dinner you can call Captain Lorie Travaglino at (732)

On an unrelated note…..are you ready for some football? The NFL season kicks off tonight with the Giants beginning defense of their Super Bowl title at home against longtime rival Washington. The game starts at 7pm because NBC wants it to be done in time for them to cover John McCain’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
