ReClam the Bay 2022 50/50 Raffle

A call to assist one of our Island’s non-profit partner organization’s annual fund raising efforts to continue their work to conserve and improve our back bays.

ReClam the Bay (RCTB) is a local 501(c)3 charitable organization, operating primarily in the Barnegat Bay estuary. We provide education about the Barnegat Bay estuary which includes Barnegat Bay, Manahawkin Bay and Little Egg Harbor Bay. Our programs are designed to conserve and improve our bays through shellfish-related, sustainable and resilient stewardship projects.

Most of our work, including all our educational efforts, is funded through donations. We do most of our fundraising through educational sessions and the sale of RCTB gear and raffle tickets at local community events and shows. Raffle sales are a huge component of our annual income. Last year a number of members of the various taxpayer associations on LBI supported RCTB by purchasing tickets for our raffle.

Can you help? There are many ways to support our mission:

  • donations at our website – reclamthebay.org
  • become a member (we offer various member levels)
  • BUT, a fun and easy way is to purchase tickets for our annual raffle

Please email billw@reclamthebay.org if you can help support our raffle. As we did last year, we will make arrangements to get you tickets through our members on LBI. Thanks in advance. (Unfortunately, New Jersey doesn’t allow online raffle sales.)

The drawings will be held Saturday, October 1, 2022, 3:00 pm at the ChowderFest Bayfront Festival, Taylor Avenue Bayfront, Beach Haven, NJ. Winners need not be present.
