Recognizing the need to help local events thrive, The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce created a Funding Committee three years ago to field, review and make recommendations to the Chamber Board to sponsor local programming, events and activities. Funding Requests can be submitted by downloading the proper form on the visitLBIregion.com website, under the Chamber section. The Funding Review Committee meets three times a year to discuss proposals that help forward the mission the of the almost one hundred year old regional business institution. Funding for the awards come from monies raised by Chowderfest and other chamber activities.
For information on the Funding Review Process please contact Lori Pepenella at the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce 609 494 7211, 265 West Ninth Street Ship Bottom NJ.
