The VNA Beach Ball is set to return to the Chapel Beach Club in Sea Bright on Saturday, Sept. 10.  

Fueled by the excitement for the return of this popular beach party, the committee members, VNA Health Group trustees and staff gathered on June 22 at Chapel for a festive Beach Ball Kick-Off celebration. Attendees met the 2022 Beach Ball honorees, Founding Co-chairs Jill and Jamie Drummond, Sandy and Vanessa Mulheren, and Maryam and Jesse Spector. The VNA Health Group will also honor OceanFirst Bank and OceanFirst Foundation as the Corporate Honoree for its generous support over the years – including, most recently, in VNA’s efforts to fight COVID-19 – as well as its support of many other charitable organizations in the community.
