BELMAR - Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty announced yesterday the launch of a new website for the town’s “Buy a Board” campaign.

Officials say the campaign allows residents and visitors to donate money toward the actual boards that make up the boardwalk.

"This is a great opportunity for those who have come to love Belmar as a clean, beautiful and family beach to be a part of the boardwalk reconstruction process," said Mayor Doherty.

Board level options are as follows:

* $5,000 Big Kahuna
* $2,500 Surf Rider
*$1,000 Sun Worshiper
* $500 Boogie Boarder
* $250 Board Runner
* $100 Clam Digger
* $25 Beach Bum

Contributors will also have their names and board levels displayed on a beach entrance of their choice.

The town is committing $20 million to rebuild its 1.3-mile boardwalk. The project includes 14,000 boards and 2,800 pilings.

The mayor is confident the boardwalk will be ready by Memorial Day.
