October 21 & 22, 2017: 

This is the 18th year of the Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey.  The idea for this wonderful event began with just two people who were part of the New Jersey Lighthouse Society and a love of lighthouses and history.  After 10 years of running this event it was no longer feasible for the Society to continue.  All of the lighthouses banned together and formed a committee.  They were determined to keep this event going.  We meet once a month to plan, organize and market this event so that we can continue to raise funds and showcase these sentinels in October.  Monies raised during this event help the Lighthouses in so many different ways such as paying salaries, utilities, insurance, maintenance, restoration projects, marketing, matching grants, historical research etc.  Each site is owned, run and managed differently but all of them need help.  This is the only time during the year that all of the Lighthouses of New Jersey agree to be open at the same time. …
