Wally’s! With an Honorable Mention going to Anchor Wine & Spirits and Tuckerton Lumber.
This is second annual “Pinkest Business in Surf City Award”. The award — given by the Surf City Taxpayers Association in conjunction with Paint The Town Pink — was one part of a collaborative effort spearheaded by Surf City Police Officer Sarah Roe and Jennifer Collins. Businesses all over town decorated their storefronts with creative displays, pink flags and ribbons. In addition, the Taxpayer Association took on a special Borough Hall Beautification project, with planters and pink flowers adorning the building.
The first place award to Wally’s acknowledged their highly creative “Surf City in Pink” windows”. To show their support as a participant in the 2017 Surf Pink/Paint the Town Pink Campaign, owner Mike Tomko, along with artist Jimmy Harrop devoted both sides of their front windows to paint a mini-map of Surf City in pink.
Paint the Town Pink is a campaign sponsored by Hackensack Meridian Health and merges a breast cancer detection reminder campaign with a special fund to provide free mammography to uninsured and underserved women in the community.
Honorable Mention Awards went to Anchor Wine and Spirits and Tuckerton Lumber. Both followed up highly creative entries from 2016 with amazing displays of support for the campaign.
Congratulations to all the winners and contributors.
