In the wake of Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, a group of friends that summered together in Chadwick Beach from an early age, founded the Chadwick Beach Restoration Fund with the hope of raising funds for the restoration of their home away from home. The group shares a strong passion for the beach that brought them together as children and helped to create lifelong friends and memories. Chadwick Beach is a small beach on the Jersey Shore, inhabited by both summer residents and full time residents. During Hurricane Sandy, Chadwick Beach suffered enormous damage to homes, businesses and infrastructure. Through the fundraising efforts of the Chadwick Beach Restoration Committee, the members hope to restore Chadwick Beach to its rightful place as an idyllic beachfront community, providing enjoyment and producing income for the surrounding community.
