Ocean Township, NJ – Early bird ticket prices are available now for the 2022 GOTCC Comedy Night and Gift Auction. This annual scholarship fundraiser will be held on Friday, November 18 at The Renaissance, Ocean Township starting at 6 pm.

This year’s comedians include three female headliners Patty Rosborough, Leighann Lord and Janice Messitte. Master-of-Ceremonies will be DJ Tom Devoy from Thunder 106’s Pork Roll & Eggs Morning Show.

The event will begin with a cocktail reception, gift auction viewing, and networking followed by a buffet dinner, open beer, and wine bar, and the comedy show. It’s a great event to celebrate with family and friends. Most importantly it provides funds for the GOTCC annual scholarship program which awards deserving local high school students scholarships to lessen the burden of pursuing their college educations.

The event is co-chaired by John “Doc” Amato and Anna Mayer. Those interested in attending are encouraged to purchase your tickets early as this event sells out every year. Individual tickets are $85 and a table of 10 can be purchased for $800. After October 15, the prices increase to $95 per ticket and $900 for a table of 10. Visit to reserve your tickets now.

Our student scholarships are partially funded by generous donations of gifts. Please consider donating a gift basket or cash to support this worthwhile cause. Call 732-660-1888 or email for more information on how to donate.

The Comedy Night and Gift Auction and all major GOTCC events and services would not be possible without the continued support of our 2022 Corporate Sponsors: Kearny Bank, Monmouth Medical Center, Manasquan Bank, Family First Urgent Care and Encompass Health.
