Avalon Fundraising Event to Rebuild Church in Haiti

Avalon, NJ — Hurricane Matthew destroyed churches in Les Cayes, Haiti, structurally, but not spiritually, Roman Catholic Cardinal Chibly Langlois told a sizable crowd at a fundraising event at the Icona Golden Inn Sunday. While the need is serious, the $100-a-plate event was not, with an extensive buffet, an auction and a display of friendly rivalry between Avalon Mayor Martin Pagliughi and Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio. Both men presented the cardinal with keys to their cities, although Desiderio said his actually worked, and would allow for free parking at meters and free beach access in Sea Isle from September to May.
