The Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce our 10th Annual Caring With Karaoke event, hosted by its Young Professionals Group. This year we are extremely excited to be partnering with Holiday Express as our beneficiary. The event will take place on Wednesday March 22, 2017 from 7pm to 11pm (program ends at 10pm) at the history Stone Pony is Asbury Park. Listed below is a brief overview of Holiday Express and their mission, but we strongly encourage you to join us for a fun night of song, prizes, food & drink and have the opportunity to learn first-hand what this great organization provides in our local community. Tickets are just $25 and includes food and your first drink! This event is a 21+ event.
Founded in 1993, by Tim McLoone, Holiday Express believes no one should be alone at the holidays. Our programs use the healing power of music and friendship to improve the quality of life for those often forgotten. In 2016, Holiday Express will visit 90 organizations in the metropolitan tristate area, bringing hope and joy to 24,000 people. Of the charities Holiday Express serves, the majority are registered 501 (c) (3) organizations. For many of these organizations traditional sources of funding are not sufficient to provide basic needs.
While most of us look forward to the holidays with excitement and anticipation, for some the months of November and December are anything but joyful or peaceful. The holidays for those struggling with financial problems, health issues, and loneliness can be a time of increased sadness, and stress. This is often the case for the people Holiday Express serves, which include those with mental and physical challenges, veterans, individuals in addiction and recovery programs, the isolated, the poor, the homeless, and children with serious illnesses.
Our signature program provides an interactive holiday musical extravaganza led by a team of volunteer professional musicians, a delicious meal, fun holiday activities, and a gift bag – a well-stocked canvas duffel bag of brand new, useful and practical items, including a warm blanket, toiletries, gloves, hat, and scarf. Over 2,000 volunteers work year-round to make a difference in the lives of adults and children in need. In most cases, ours is the only holiday program offered at the organizations we visit. Holiday Express receives no state or federal funding of any kind. All the money, food and gift bag items are donated or purchased at discounted prices.
Holiday Express brings hope and joy to thousands of people each year. We are a critical link to the forgotten individuals and society, fostering the healing connection between music and people.
The event will include a guest judged karaoke contest with prizes, open karaoke, over 30 tricky tray items, & more…
