Sandy Hook, NJ—The Jersey Shore Partnership Foundation (Partnership) will kick off its 22nd Annual Summer Celebration on Monday, June 10, 2019 at Fort Hancock, Sandy Hook from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m.  The Monmouth County Young Democrats and Republicans are heading up the Summer Celebration Young Professionals Committee, bringing together business associates ages 21-35 to support the Partnership’s mission to ensure that our 127 mile beachfront from Sandy Hook to Cape May is preserved and protected.

Committee chairs are Kinn Badger, Executive Director, Monmouth County Democrats, and Jason Sena, Esq., an associate with Cutolo Barros LLC and Treasurer of the Monmouth County Young Republicans.  Kinn states, “It is important to get young professionals involved in the environmental concerns facing our coast in light of sea level rise, climate change, and the prospect of increased storms that all cause beach erosion and infrastructure damage.”   Jason commented, “Preserving our coastline is vital to our local economy and is an issue that we can all get behind.  Kinn and I are pleased with the tremendous support we have received from our members.”
