Long-time manager of Asbury Park’s own “Cheers,” Charlie Gurrera, passed away this week. This is not just a loss for his family and friends, but for the community of Asbury Park N.J.
Charlie was a consistent supporter of charitable organizations, like the Beacon Light Fund and Toys for Tots, he also supported many of the up and coming talents in New Jersey. Charlie was always known to have a friendly smile at the bar, no matter the time of day, and his death leaves a void for many.
There will be a celebration of Charlie’s life at Georgie’s on August 31st, 2014 from 4-7 pm with a tribute to follow in the pages of this magazine. All are welcome to attend and celebrate the life of a much loved New Jersey original.
