OCEAN CITY – Ocean City’s Night in Venice Pageant Committee (NIVPC) paid tribute to the American Legion’s century of helping veterans and their families by presenting a $7,000 donation to Post 524 during a luncheon celebration.
According to a release, the NIVPC, formed in 1988, annually chooses three or four local charities to receive funds raised by the 12 Miss Night In Venice contestants as part of their pageant campaigns. 
“The reason we selected Ocean City American Legion Post 524 as one of our major donation recipients this year is because of the amazing work they do with veterans, veteran families and young people.” stated Miss NIV Pageant Committee Chair Pat Gillian.
Throughout the year, the local American Legion post sponsors a wide range of community projects, such as: The Walk for the Wounded, The Run for the Fallen, The Veterans Rest & Relaxation Program,  The Coffee Express (sending packages of care to deployed servicemen and women worldwide), The Veterans Memorial Home in Vineland, The Veterans Recognition Program at United Methodist Communities at The Shores, New Jersey Boys’ and Girls’ State, and The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA.)
“I thank the NIVPC for this generous donation, which will help our local American Legion organization continue its work on behalf of veterans throughout the coming year,” stated Post 524 Commander Bob Marzulli.
