Kick Cancer Overboard, an organization that gives free cruises to people whose lives have been affected by cancer, gave cruises to Lauren Antonucci and her mother, Margaret Johnson of Long Branch at a recent benefit concert at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
“So far this year we have given away 20 cruises to those who truly deserve a break,” said Ted Friedli, the founder of KCO and the owner of Excel Travel in Long Branch.
This year’s cruise leaves from Cape Liberty on May 19 and sails to Bermuda. The trip is open to anyone, not just cancer survivors. For every 12th person booked another survivor gets a free cruise.
KCO’s upcoming events are a fashion show at the Two River Theater in Red Bank on March 12 and a family rock show with Rockit at the Middletown Arts Center on March 17. For more information: www.kickcanceroverboard.org
