Wanamassa — The Turning Point Restaurants, known for upscale breakfast, brunch and lunch eateries, creative offerings and friendly staff, hosted a weekend fundraiser on November 3 and 4 to benefit LADACIN Network. The Turning Point locations in Long Branch, Little Silver, Holmdel, Manalapan, Brick and Sea Girt hosted “Eat, Drink and Be Caring… Serving the Mission of LADACIN Network.” It was the 13th annual event hosted by the Turning Point, and $17,516 was raised over the weekend to support LADACIN Network’s educational, therapeutic, social, residential and support services. An overall total of $181,501 has been raised since the event began in 2007. Owners Kirk and Pam Ruoff and their staff members are the reason behind the success of this fundraiser. With a history of philanthropy and fundraising for various causes, they raise awareness and rally support for LADACIN by promoting the fundraiser to restaurant patrons. In return for a donation of $25 or more to LADACIN, the Turning Point offered guests gift cards for free entrees on a future visit. LADACIN Network serves over 3,500 infants, children and adults with complex physical and developmental disabilities or delays in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

In August of 2001, the founders of The Link News felt a void in this densely populated area of Eastern Monmouth County. Something was missing that was needed to truly cover the news and give advertisers an avenue to attract customers. Within 30 days, The Link News became a reality! After one edition, everyone was talking about ‘The Link’ !
Today, The Link News reaches thousands of readers each week. A paid for Newspaper with sales through subscriptions, convenience stores, and vending machines insures Link advertisers that the paper is being purchased and read, and not just thrown in the recycling pile.
Local events and sports coverage, an aggressive approach to digging for news, incentive-based subscription drives and innovative advertising methods are just some of the reasons for The Link’s success. One thing is certain, Link readers can’t wait for the next edition!
