2017 Honoree Marilyn Schlossbach

We are proud to announce our 2016-17 Honoree for our Annual Gala “Building Hope for Bright Future”.

Marilyn Schlossbach is an executive chef and restaurateur who founded and manages the Marilyn Schlossbach Group, a hospitality company that currently manages restaurant and retail environments along with a catering business in some of New Jersey’s most beloved shore towns.  She is an environmentalist, community activist, traveler, and surfer who is on a continual quest for culture and knowledge and shares her passion for the road less traveled with her patrons and community.

After years spent honing her craft, Marilyn is now the proprietor of food and beverage establishments along the New Jersey Coast and is a tireless community advocate, endeavoring to support and cultivate her community through the culinary arts.  Her community work includes a collaboration with Interfaith Neighbors on Asbury Park’s Kula Cafe, community gardening and surf lessons with the Boys and Girls Club of Asbury Park, and unwavering support of environmental organizations like Clean Ocean Action that work to protect coastlines and marine environments.

We look forward to working together with Marilyn and our three charities to make this gala year our most successful yet!
