The Brick Rotary Club is sponsoring its 31st annual dinner next week to raise funds which will be used to purchase body armor for Brick Township police officers

The Bullet Proof Vest Fund Dance will be held Friday, July 24 at 7 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Adamston Road in Brick. The Infernos, a popular local cover band, will be performing, and there will be a hot and cold buffet with a cash bar. Donation is $30 per person and advance ticket purchase is suggested.

The vest fund began in late 1970s and early 1980s, with the first dance held in 1985. To date, over $750,000 has been raised and every officer is vested, including the department’s K9 officers. The Rotary Club also purchased equipment which was used during Superstorm Sandy to help with rescues on the barrier island.
