This year marks the 14th annual Sunset Party, hosted by Clean Ocean Action (COA), an ocean advocacy non-profit. Based on Sandy Hook, COA is the only full time regional coalition that works exclusively for a clean ocean off the coasts of New Jersey and New York.
Seaside Sunset will be held at McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch. While the evening’s menu will include a buffet designed by McLoone’s Chef Joe Racioppi, Seaside Sunset gives local businesses a great opportunity to demonstrate their support of a clean and healthy ocean. Local family-owned favorites, Lusty Lobster Seafood Market & Cateringand Sickles Market will provide a delicious raw bar and unique artisan cheeses, respectfully. Dynamic desserts will be provided by Wholesome Catering, an all organic, gluten-free “catering with a conscience” business. Also, the auction, raffles, and game of chance will be filled with unique, ocean-friendly gifts and services with a focus on small businesses and local/regional restaurants.
The menu for Seaside Sunset includes U.S. North Atlantic swordfish, which is now considered “sustainable seafood.” Sustainable seafood is from fished or farmed sources that protect the species and can maintain or increase production in the future without endangering the ecosystems from which it came.
Clean Ocean Action’s Seaside Sunset event looks to promote protection of the ocean and raise awareness of current ocean issues in an environmentally friendly way. From the menu, to the local businesses involved and the location of the event, Seaside Sunset is sure to be an amazing evening with a low ecological footprint!
