"Oh, the weather outside was frightful, but the party inside was so delightful!" The lyrics of this popular holiday song describe the terrible rain that could have ruined the New Jersey Cameo Club Christmas party. The last gala event of the 2008 season was held on Thursday, December 11th. The heavy downpour and high winds did not keep the members and invited guests away, nor did it dampen anyone spirits. Over 100 people came, making this the best attended party ever. All the ladies were dressed so beautifully, in gowns of every style, with red and green as the dominant color. Husbands, escorts, and significant others scored equally as well, looking very handsome in their tuxedos and dark suits.

The event was held at the elegant Lobster Shanty in Toms River, in the main banquet room. Festive outdoor lights glowed brightly onto the terrace, making the Toms River visible at night. The food was excellent, the wait staff was courteous, and a mimosa fountain "flowed" all night long.

Everyone danced the night away to live music performed by Steve Berger and his wife Debbie. People bought tickets for the chance to win many door prizes that were donated by area merchants. Kudos to NJCC president Delores Puzio and her committee for a job well done!
