A note from Holiday Express:
Four hundred people attended the Fourth Annual Holiday Express Clambake sponsored by Shore Pont Distributing Company and Holly Crest Wine on Sept. 18, on the beach at McLoone’s Pier House. An estimated $100,000 was raised to support the mission of Holiday Express.
Attendees were treated to an evening of ocean breezes, a lavish buffet, dancing, and entertainment. The night was a huge success made possible by generous individuals and companies who donated money, time, and auction items.
Established by Tim McLoone in 1993, Holiday Express is a non-profit organization. Comprised of more than 1,600 volunteers, including 100 professional rock, jazz, folk, gospel and pop musicians, Holiday Express delivers music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year.
