The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care is an organization that brings members of the community together to support men, women and children being treated for cancer.

The foundation, which is located in Tinton Falls, will sponsor its largest fundraising event of the year on April 29 when the Beauty Ball 2017 is held at the Asbury Hotel in Asbury Park.

The affair, which is in its 11th year, will run from from 6:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.

Peter Criss, founding member and original drummer for the rock n’ roll supergroup, KISS, will highlight an evening of entertainment.

As a cancer survivor and recipient of the foundation’s Man of Courage Award, Criss will be performing his hit song “Beth,” live at the event.


The affair, which will help support families dealing with the impact of cancer, will feature an evening filled with live and silent auctions, basket raffles, dinner, cocktails and entertainment provided by a DJ and the jazz group,”The Wright Trio.”

This year, the foundation will honor both the Holt Construction Corporation and Frank Rizzo for significant contributions.

According to the foundation, Holt Construction Corporation has been a loyal supporter of the foundation for the past 11 years, sponsoring and attending many of their events including the Beauty Ball, while also contributing to many other charitable organizations.

The Unsung Hero Award will be presented to Rizzo, co-owner of Amazing Decoration, a holiday decorating company that is available throughout New Jersey. According to the foundation, Rizzo has surprised many foundation families by donating outdoor decorating during the holiday season.

Since its inception in 2007, the Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care has supported over 1,500 families by providing over $1,500,000 million in grants and services to cover such costs as transportation, household bills, groceries, housecleaning services and childcare.
