Annual Picnic

Softball Classic, Backpack & School Supplies Giveaway, Wellness Fair

Lunch Break’s Annual Picnic and Softball Classic is a summer event, bringing the community together for a day filled with fun, food, local resources and friendly competition. The yearly celebration brings the Lunch Break Community together to enjoy the day at Red Bank’s Count Basie Fields.

Softball Classic

The Softball Classic introduces an element of spirited competition, with teams from the community, local businesses, and organizations participating in a friendly tournament. To make this event a complete success, Lunch Break is asking community members, businesses and corporate sponsors to step up to the plate and join our Softball Challenge lineup. In addition to the softball challenge, we’re treating our wonderful neighbors to food, games and music — all in the name of fun and community fellowship. Are you ready to pitch in for Lunch Break? Please click below to register for this year’s event. New and seasoned softball players are welcome to compete for the coveted game day trophy.

Don’t forget to bring your fans! Families and friends are invited to cheer for your team and enjoy the picnic. Registration proceeds will support the vital services Lunch Break provides to our neighbors in need, including basic needs, clothing, life skills, housing solutions, and family counseling services.

If you’d like to sponsor a team or join one, or for additional sponsorship opportunities, please contact Millie Jeter at mjeter@lunchbreak.org / 732-747-8577 x 3102 or Gina Vastola at gvastola@lunchbreak.org / 732-604-8495. We look forward to seeing you!
