Martin Truex Jr. has deep roots in southern New Jersey. As a winning NASACAR Sprint Cup driver of the #78 Furniture Row Chevrolet, Martin comes home often to enjoy family and friends. Once a year, however; he comes home to raise funds for his foundation with an annual golf tournament, and fan event. For the past several years, the fan event has been held at Manahawkin Lake Park. This is a family friendly event where everyone can gather, listen to live music, enjoy great food and beverage, kids can play on inflatables and participate in a variety of other activities.
This year’s event will be held at Manahawkin Lake Park once again with the generous help of the Stafford Township Rec Department on Thursday, October 1, 2015 from 4-7pm. Martin will be on hand to sign autographs and pose for photos from 4:30-6:30pm. After that he will take the stage and share a little about what this year has been like and award the annual MTJF Humanitarian of the Year.
If you know of an individual or group deserving of community recognition for going above and beyond in their efforts to make Ocean County a better place to live and work please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2015. The Board of Directors along with Martin and Sherry will select one winner who will receive $1,500 towards their efforts.
There will be #78 souvenirs on hand, and a silent auction to raise funds for the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation. See you there!
