SEA BRIGHT:For those who were displaced by the Dec. 7 fire in the borough's downtown, this holiday season has become even more about giving.
DIVE! Coastal Bar, which is located just down the street from the fire site, has organized a holiday benefit for the fire victims.
The benefit was originally scheduled to be a holiday party, but was changed to a benefit earlier this week and has been scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m.
"Instead of having people bring unwrapped gift donations we can collect items for the victims," the event description reads. "We were also planning prizes and give aways that we can turn into a silent or Chinese auction to benefit them as well."
Councilman Marc Leckstein suggested on Facebook that the best type of gift for the fire victims at this point is gift cards because they can be used to purchase various things.
Michael Ghegan will also be performing at Dive! on Wednesday night during the benefit.
