GET A PERSONAL CALL FROM LIGHTKEEPER “BUDDY” ON
MOTHER’S DAY

 

Atlantic City’s very own “Buddy” Grover, will call you or your Mother on Mother’s Day weekend. Buddy has been serving as a volunteer lightkeeper at the top of Absecon Lighthouse since 2009, and is beloved by residents of Atlantic City and lighthouse visitors. This year, you may not be able to visit your Mom, or take her to a special dinner, and we would like to do something just for her. To celebrate Mother’s Day, and raise critical funds for Absecon Lighthouse, Buddy will personally call participants of this fundraising promotion on Saturday, May 9th, and Sunday, May 10th, between the hours of Noon to 3pm. 

The donation is $10 for a Mother’s Day greeting and heartfelt hello, and $20 for a Mother’s Day greeting and five minute chat. Donors can always give more from the heart in honor of their special Mother, and to further aid the lighthouse in our time of need.

Reservations and time slots are required; please call 609-449-1360, so we may have all of the contact details and set up your special call time!

COVID19 Closure

The light will still shine every night, but as of today we will be closed to the public and follow NJ government recommendations. We will keep you posted!

For more information on any event or to reserve tickets, please call 609-449-1360. Most events require reservations.
