#JerseyLove Social Media Event Raised $5k for Displaced Belmar, NJ Families

The #JerseyLove Social Media Moms Retreat was a huge success and raised a total of $5k for displaced families along the Jersey Shore. These moms and bloggers pulled out all of the stops to bring attention to the destruction Hurricane Sandy caused to so many shore towns in NJ and NY and to show the world that the Jersey Shore is open for business.JerseyLoveI was so excited to be a part of this event and my son and I had a great time at the events, despite Tropical Storm Andrea who graced the shores with her rain and rough surf.

Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty led the festivities and was so appreciative of the effort and attention that the Jersey Shore was getting from this event. There is still much more work to be done, so if you’re interested in making donation to support the displaced families of Belmar who still need assistance, please visit Belmar Relief.

**Disclosure: This was a sponsored trip I was invited to attend.**
