HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – There will be pasta dinner benefit 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 at the Davies Middle School to support local resident Maria Duble and her family as she battles cancer.

Duble, a 48-year-old wife and mother of three, and friend to many in the community, has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments for the past four months.

The benefit is being organized not only to try and ease the financial burden as Duble continues her courageous and exhausting battle with cancer, but also to say thank you to a family that has given more than a decade of service to the youth of Hamilton Township.

Through their involvement with the Mays Landing Athletic Association, Jon Duble has volunteered as a coach and commissioner for the Little League and Babe Ruth baseball programs, as well as street hockey. His years of with the MLAA have included service as treasurer, vice president and, most recently, as president of the organization.

Throughout Jon's tenure in the MLAA, Maria has helped with fundraisers, worked the concession stand and served as concession stand coordinator.

“Thousands of parents and children alike, if they participated in any of the sports programs throughout Hamilton Township in the past or present, owe a debt of thanks to people like the Dubles,” said Cliff Melder, school system director of community education.

The Duble benefit will include a pasta dinner and Chinese auction. A “family night out,” it will include music supplied by DJs.

Dinner tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children. For advance tickets or information, call the Hamilton Township Community Education Department at (609) 476-6311.

Auction and monetary donations are being accepted at Ocean City Home Bank, c/o the Duble Benefit.
