What We Do with the Arts

The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation collaborated with local artist Brian Hanlon, the Toms River Municipal Government and the Ocean County Business and Tourism Advisory Board to develop a $500,000 monument in recognition of the community’s indomitable spirit shown during the County’s recovery from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. “We wanted to give something back to a county that has been our home for the last 45 years,” Jay Grunin said. “Most importantly, we wanted to forge a new image in people’s minds that truly represents what our community stands for: family, great recreational offerings and people that rise above adversity, regardless of the obstacle.”
