By Lori Draz

The Center in Asbury Park is delighted to once again host its delicious event, Center a la Carte – A Birthday Bash, on Friday, May 20 from 7 to 10 pm at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park. This year marks 30 years that The Center has been serving folks living with HIV/AIDS. 

Center a la Carte – A Birthday Bash features 25 of the area’s favorite restaurants who will be serving their famous fare. There will also be an open bar and music from DJ Philip James with Sharon Lasher and the Flashers as well as the big Gift Auction and 50/50. 

The Center, a 501(c)3 organization, lives its mission of serving folks living with HIV/AIDS daily. Over the years, hundreds of volunteers have and continue to help thousands of people by offering them access to social services and a warm lunch, along with the most important side dish of human compassion. The Center also provides food for 25 residents and the delivery of food baskets for those living with HIV/AIDS, and you can help their good works continue. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased at
