The Chamber celebrates the business community every year at its Awards Dinner. This year was the 85th year of this tradition.
Presentations are made to businesses that have made great strides during the previous year. Additionally, the Louis G. Libutti Community Service Award is presented. Exemplary leadership, outstanding professional achievement and community service are the criteria for this award.
The silent auction array is representative of all our businesses have to offer.
Every Fourth of July, hundreds of thousands of people head to Long Branch to celebrate! The scenic Oceanfront Promenade, the Great lawn, and the beautiful sandy beaches of Long Branch are all packed with people here to have a fabulous time.
The festivities starts –rain or shine – at 10 am and runs until 10 pm with the world class Oceanfest fireworks display. During the day there are fabulous bands, children’s entertainment; professional sand sculptures, dancers, clowns, strolling super heros and so much more. This year will include a Zipline on the beach!
For 29 years the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce and the City of Long Branch have worked together to produce this wonderful event. Our corporate sponsors make it all possible including Monmouth Medical Center, Ocean Place Resort & Spa, Pier Village, Monmouth University, AJD Construction and Centex Homes, as well as through the generosity of numerous individuals and businesses in the area.
