Belmarboards.com allows anyone to donate funds towards the purchase of boards that will be used to reconstruct the 1.3-mile boardwalk.
WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reports
“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 Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty.
Donation levels range from $25 for “beach bums” to $5,000 for “big kahunas.”
After the boardwalk is rebuilt, contributors will have their names displayed on a beach entrance of their choice.
“Belmar has had a boardwalk every summer since 1875 and with everyone’s help, this summer will be no different,” said Doherty.
Belmar has approved a $20 million bond to rebuild the boardwalk by next Memorial Day.
