Belmar, NJ -  Today Mayor Matt Doherty announced the “Buy a Board” Campaign in Belmar. It will allow residents and visitors alike to donate money towards the actual boards that make up the boardwalk. 

“This is a great opportunity for those who have come to love Belmar as a clean, beautiful and family beach to be a part of the boardwalk reconstruction process,” said Mayor Doherty. 

Board level options are as follows: 

·    $5,000       Big Kahuna
·    $2,500       Surf Rider
·    $1,000       Sun Worshiper
·    $500          Boogie Boarder
·    $250          Board Runner
·    $100          Clam Digger
·    $25            Beach Bum

Contributors will also be able to have their name and board level displayed on a beach entrance of their choice.

“Belmar has had a boardwalk every summer since 1875,” said Mayor Doherty, “and with everyone’s help, this summer will be no different.”
