Join Friends of the Nor'easters for a fun evening for a good cause

The 'Friends' foundation will be holding its first official fundraiser on April 25 at Sofia Restraurant in Margate.

The Ocean City Nor'easters are proud to announce a new charitible wing to the club: The Friends of the Ocean City Nor'easters Foundation.

The foundation was created to spread the love of the game of soccer while enhancing the dynamic integration of the Nor'easters organization into the heart of the South Jersey community.

The 'Friends' foundation will be holding its first official fundraiser on Tuesday, April 25 at Sofia Restraurant in Margate. Everyone is invited to enjoy some delicious heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar featuring some tasty signature cocktails, including "The Nor'easter". There will also be some great music, great friends and beautiful surroundings at one of South Jersey's finest establishments.

There will also be some games and contests, such as "the hat trick" where fans can guess how many total candies there are in three jars to win a pair of Nor'easters season tickets ($5 per entry).

Tickets to the event are $25 per person and those in attendance will have the opportunity to win some exciting prizes in a silent auction.

Some of the prizes to be won in the silent auction include:

Proceeds from the event will benefit the foundation which will create scholarship opportunities for local youth soccer players, expand and enhance Nor'easters community soccer programs, and enrich hospitality and care of PDL players who are coming to Ocean City from all over the world. The foundation also funds a variety of Nor'easters community service programs and events, and other charitable endeavors. 

Tickets can be purchased at the door, at the Ocean City Nor'easters headquarters, or by calling (609) 214-2380 or emailing Nor'easters Director of Community Relations Jill Adamson at
