ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – The Atlantic Highlands Police Benevolence Association Local 242 will host its 27th annual ball on Friday, May 23, at the Shore Casino.
The event for many residents is an annual rite of spring.
Dining, hors d’oeuvres and an open bar combined with a charity auction featuring dozens of prizes are expected to attract large numbers of residents.
Over the years, P.B.A Local No. 242 has contributed proceeds from the event to local organizations, including the AH Historical Society, Henry Hudson Regional High School and the Atlantic Highlands Elementary School. This year, the proceeds from the charity auction are being given to the Atlantic Highlands Chamber of Commerce
