Some participants are also sharing optional shore memories and photos for inclusion in the book. There is no charge to participate. Names of businesses and organizations who participate will be published in the book, as well as names of individual contributors. Some groups such as the WGirls Coastal NJ of Redbank have also submitted as a group and have included a group photo.
The goal of the Savoring the Shore fundraising cookbook is to celebrate the NJ Shore while raising funds to help rebuild the Garden State. All proceeds will go to NJ Shore Hurricane Sandy relief.
