Playa Bowls Raising $100K for NJ Cancer Respite

Playa Bowls, New Jersey’s finest health food shop specializing in acai, pitaya and chia pudding bowls, juices and smoothies, is hosting a month-long fundraiser this October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness to support Mary’s Place by the Sea, a New Jersey-based non-profit respite home for women with all forms of cancer.

Founded in Belmar in 2014, Playa Bowls, which now boasts 55 locations on the East Coast, is raising funds for Mary’s Place by the Sea, which helps women with cancer who need a break from medical treatments and daily responsibilities to focus on healing: mind, body and soul.

Guests benefit from integrative services that complement their treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, counseling, guided meditation, yoga and more, with all services at no cost to guests. Thanks to the generosity of individual, corporate and third-party donors, Mary’s Place operates out of a state-of-the-art, custom-built, 10-bedroom home in Ocean Grove, NJ, one block from the beach.

This October, you can support Mary’s Place by the Sea by ordering the “Playa Pink Oatmeal Bowl” at a Playa Bowls location near you with 10 percent of the purchase price going to this cause. Donations can also be made at the register with other items purchased if you would like to do more.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Playa Bowls, an innovative, community-driven company, and are grateful for their support,” said Michele Gannon, President and Co-Founder of Mary’s Place by the Sea.
