A huge crowd came out for Wednesday night's West End Fire Relief fundraiser at Ocean Place Resort & Spa.
People had to be turned away at the door, because there simply was no space left.
That has been the trend lately, as the fire relief fund had to stop allowing clothing donations a week ago, as the outpouring of support from the community became, if possible, too much.
Last night's event featured food, drinks, music and even Big Joe Henry from New Jersey 101.5. Big Joe Henry, a Long Branch resident, served as a guest auctioneer for the evening.
NJ Discover was there to cover the event and interviewed several of the participants.
