Red Bank-based the Sawtooth Group recently presented Sea Bright Rising founder Chris Wood, of Fair Haven, with a check for $5,000 to aid the rebuilding effort in the storm-damaged borough.
Wood, owner of Woody's Ocean Grille in Sea Bright and the architect of the "Food City" center for provisions, was on hand at the Downtown in Red Bank during Sawtooth's holiday party, which was dedicated as a fundraiser for the Sea Bright support group.
Sawtooth Partner Kristi Bridges said, “We chose Sea Bright Rising because it has been a huge part of the lives of many of our employees. Many of them grew up going to the beach there and many of us have watched our kids grow up there. We also have an employee that lives there.”
Sea Bright Rising is a nonprofit devoted to hurricane relief and general recovery in Sea Bright. Sawtooth is a advertising and marketing agency headquartered in Red Bank.
Employees also hosted a 50/50 and raffle to raise additional money at the event.
