TRAC HELPS NO KIDS HUNGRY

CHEF TONI

 Meet Chef Toni! Feeding those in need in Ocean County! She ll be selling her delicious baked goods on Saturday at our TRAC Summer Arts Fest in support of the NO KID HUNGRY project.

The No Kids hungry bake sale is a program anyone can sign up for. Chef Toni always wanted to get involved but never had time, until one day she decided to just go for it!  Anything she could do was better than nothing.  Chef Toni has also been feeding the homeless for about 3 years.  Her first event was at Tent City and it was a big success!  After Tent City was abolished Chef Toni and her Sous Chef  made food, collect clothes and distribute where needed.  Last year she got involved with Code Blue (the winter coat warming centers of Ocean County. Chef Toni feeds the homeless 2x a month.  She also volunteers for JBJ Soul Kitchen in Toms River and Simons Soup Kitchen in Seaside Heights.  She teamed up with Sharon Quilter (baker) for No Kid Hungry because like Chef Toni, Sharon has a heart of gold.  Come down on Saturday to meet these amazing women and try their food and goodies!  All proceeds go to NO KID HUNGRY.  TRAC is honored and humbled to be working with these great women.  Stay tuned for more combined events with TRAC and NO KID HUNGRY!!

TRAC HOSTS TOMS RIVER HIGH SCHOOL SOUTH

OUR ANNUAL JURIED  ART COMPETITION FOR THE ARTISTS AT HIGH SCHOOL SOUTH.  CONGRATS TO OUR WINNERS AND ALL THE ARTISTS THAT PARTICIPATED.

We Give Back

As a 501(c)(3) Organization we know how hard it is to raise funds. So as a Community we give back when we can

image54

This basket was donated by TRAC to a local dance academy fund raiser.  We had 12 of our Artists donate 1 piece of art each.  This basket was raffled off for $5.00 a ticket.  There was 489 tickets in the bucket by the time the winner was pulled.  Our basket raised $2445.00 for the kids in this dance academy! TRAC believes in giving back.

Get Involved

image55

It not only takes many hands, hearts and minds to make an organization like this work. It also takes money.  We are a 501(c)(3) Corporation.  We rely solely on membership dues, fundraisers and the generosity of our community to keep our Gallery open for all to enjoy.

Thank You

image56

To our Board of Directors, BID, The Township of Toms River, public groups, sponsors, family, friends, supporters and of course all our Artists.  Thank you, with out all of your help TRAC could not do this.
