Allenhurst, NJ – The wine was flowing, the beers were chilling, and the food, chocolates and sweets were abundant as the Greater Ocean Township Chamber of Commerce hosted Wine, Chocolate & More in’24! event at the nostalgic Shore Antique Center, Thursday, April 18.

Along with a great selection of sandwiches, sushi, fruits, and cheeses from Wegmans the event featured delicious trays of pasta and hummus from Ocean Township’s newest restaurant, Peel, and delicious samples from Chick fil-A’s catering menu.

Decadent chocolates distributed by Lindt, Enjou, Lily & Sparrow, and Mazur were a great pairing for the wine tastings provided by, Shark River Hills Wine, Save Rite, Allenhurst Fine Wine & Spirits and Cobblestone Wine & Spirits.

Local breweries, Twin Lights and Wild Air were also on hand to showcase some flavorful and high-quality craft beers. And 3BR Distillery provide an interesting variety of craft spirit samples!

Additional mouthwatering desserts were provided by Shore Cake Supply and Bay Leaf Bakery.

A celebrity guest appearance by Robby and Rochelle from 107.1 The Boss completed the night!

The event was about more than just sipping, sampling, and listening to great music. It was also an opportunity to network with the local community, learn more about the Chamber, eat and drink while benefiting the GOTCC Scholarship Program.

“We were very excited to again host the Wine, Chocolate & More! event”, said Rose O’Connor Myer, Owner, Shore Antique Center.  “While we love supporting the Chamber’s scholarship program, it is also a great opportunity to introduce this unique venue to people who might not have come through our doors. The Shore Antique Center is the perfect backdrop for meeting new connections while exploring and browsing vintage collectables and rare antiques.”

GOTCC is grateful for our corporate sponsors Ansell Grimm & Aaron, Manasquan Bank, Monmouth Medical Center, and Family First Urgent Care for their annual support. Also sponsoring this event is APP/ LocaliQ, The Coaster, Press Communications and Wegmans.
