Continuing the tradition of giving back, fundraising or promoting - we have been honored to work with the organizations listed below and encourage you to check out these great groups and causes.
Asbury Park's St. Patrick Day Parade
.In 2013 a small committee gathered to craft a parade that celebrates St. Patrick while acknowledging the diversity of the people & culture of Asbury Park. Much thought and planning went into the original concept to make certain that it was all inclusive and unique to Asbury Park while still incorporating the most loved traditions of a good old fashioned parade.
The committee has grown and evolved along with the parade. Each year there is a beloved local participation from our honored veterans, to local Boy & Girl Scout troops, dance schools, high school marching bands, bicyclcists, animal rescue group, classic cars, regional pipe & drum groups and first responders, national & international award winning mummers, clowns, roller girls, live bands on floats to Asbury Park's beloved zombies and so much more!
Each year the AP St. Patrick's Day Parade has donated to charitable organizations including AP Little League, The Center, AP Historical Society, the Victims of the Orlando Shooting, AP FD Local 384 and AP Recreation.
Although several fundraisers are held throughout the year, mostly in January and February, and in addition to funds raised by personal solicitation and sponsors, the parade is in need of additional funds to bring the best parade to A.P. and to continue the goal of giving back to charitable organizations that are always in need
Asbury Park St. Patrick's Day Parade is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
The Asbury Park St. Patrick's Day Parade is held on the second Sunday of every March.

It reflects our comprehensive approach that goes beyond providing food and helps those in need get to a place where they can get back on their feet for good.
Ending hunger in our communities is a complex challenge, so Fulfill provides a full suite of programs to provide the resources people need to become self-sufficient.
