Sandy Angels

Sandy Angels

With more than 1,600 participants, organizers of the Sandy Angels charity event in Seaside Park say they believe they broke a record for the most “sand angels” ever being made at one time.

In all, 1,609 people were documented to have made sand angels, which conceivably would break the Michigan record of 1,387.

The event also raised over $40,000 for hurricane victims, locally and in the Caribbean. A large portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group, but given recent events, organizers said they would send donations to the Salvation Army in areas affected by hurricanes Irma and Maria. OceanFirst and New Jersey Natural Gas matched donations offered by participants.
