Once again, I am very excited to be part of an amazing project being developed in Toms River for all people, especially those with special needs. It's called the Toms River "Field of Dreams". And is expected to be completed by this summer

Once again, there will be a "Casino Night" Fundraiser happening (that I will be the emcee for) on Saturday Night, April 25th, at 6p at the Spring Like Manor to raise money and awareness for the "Field of Dreams. Tickets are $125, which includes a four-hour open bar, Buffet, Dessert, & $50 in chips. Click HERE for tickets.

The "Field of Dreams" will be MORE than just a "special needs" playground. It will be a complex within the community for children and adults with special needs to enjoy the basic fundamentals of play: an inning or two of baseball paired with a “buddy” on a rubberized baseball field, nine holes of miniature golf on a wheelchair accessible course, adaptive playground equipment on an all-inclusive playground, a game of basketball on a rubberized court with collapsible rims, or a stroll on an art encompassed walking path surrounded by a multi-sensory landscape.

The "Field of Dreams" project is being led by Toms River High School North teacher Christian Kane, and his wife Mary with the inspiration being brought by their eight-year-old son Gavin who was involved in a serious car accident six years ago that left Gavin with a traumatic brain injury.

The "Field of Dreams" complex will be located on North Bay Ave, next to the police station, and will be a state of the art facility that is like no other in the country.
