Second Annual Suzie Girl Fireworks Cruise
Fun for All
Thanks again to the generosity of Jim Hull, owner of Jim Hull Sportfishing of Belmar, his boat, the “Suzie Girl” pulled out of its berth Thursday evening, July 30 with a full load of NJSOCF friends and supporters.
The 80-foot fishing boat is named after Jim’s late wife, Susan Hull, who lost her brave life-long battle with cystic fibrosis in 2001.
The boat left the harbor and headed south through smooth waters along the Jersey Shore to Point Pleasant, where it dropped anchor for spectacular fireworks that started at 9 p.m.
Captain Jim” said he decided to hold the fundraiser as a way to thank NJSOCF for all of the help they gave his wife over a twelve-year period.
NJSOCF Executive Director Debra Sikkema said the event was another big success. “We all had a wonderful time,” she said. “There was plenty of food, the weather was perfect, the fireworks unbelievable, and we all look forward to doing it again.”
