Farmingdale, NJ – United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties (UWMOC) hosted their 50th Anniversary Gala on Friday, April 20, 2018 at Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club, Farmingdale, NJ.

The Gala was a huge success raising over $75,000 net with 203 guests in attendance, making it the largest fundraiser to date. The evening was reminiscent of being at the beach in the summer with boardwalk games and prizes, music, ice cream sundaes and a s’mores bar for an interactive dessert experience. Event proceeds will benefit UWMOC’s work in school readiness, early grade reading, financial stability and youth career pathways. 

UWMOC was proud to honor Enterprise-Rent-Car with the Corporate Leadership Award, David & Sarah Fischell with the Loyal Individual Leadership Award and Fulfill with the Community Partner Award. United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties values their long-standing partnerships with these individuals and companies who have truly made a difference in our community. 

UWMOC thanks the honorees, generous sponsors, Gala Committee members, Board members, volunteers and attendees for making the 2018 50th Anniversary Gala a great success and evening to remember. Their passion and dedication have furthered United Way’s mission and have brought resources to those who need it most.
