Summer Fun with Impact 100 Jersey Coast

The lazy days of summer didn’t affect any of us at Impact 100 Jersey Coast.  We took advantage of the warmer weather to hold five safe, outdoor events where members could catch up with old friends, mingle,  and in some cases meet for the first time off screen! 

The positive energy at each event was palpable. The guest list a true reflection of who we are, women from diverse backgrounds joining together for a common cause.  

Our Summer Series began on June 17th with a  kick off celebration at member, Marilyn Schlossbach’s White Chapel Project in Long Branch. 

On July 14th we headed over to the Monmouth Museum and Cultural Center. Members, kids and non-member guests were treated to a reception in the Nature Garden and a self-guided gallery tour featuring artwork from local artists including the Making Art Possible grant funded by Impact 100 Jersey Coast in 2020. 

In August we kicked it into high gear offering something for everyone with three events. On August 5th, members packed up their lawn chairs and picnic baskets for a dinner under the stars at Beyond Organics in Freehold.  Following closely on August 10th, those interested in learning more about Impact’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives met at DEI Co-Chair, Valerie Brett’s home for an evening of drinks and discussion. Many good ideas and some new working group members came out of a lively discussion. Finally, on August 12th at a special fundraiser hosted by member, Sarah Personette,members and friends enjoyed a sunset yoga class led by Vanessa Van Noy. All proceeds raised will support Impact 100 Jersey Coast’s Scholarship Program.

 A huge thank you to all those who attended and especially those involved in planning and executing our Summer Series. And a special shout out to our event coordinators, Becky Proske, Amy Montano, Elizabeth Langtry, Valerie Brett. Your dedication to Impact gave us all a Summer to remember!
