TOMS RIVER – Jersey Shore First Responders will be coming together in support of Berkeley Township EMT Megan Franzoso on Jan. 5 for a benefit game.

Franzoso went into cardiac arrest on Sept. 14 at Community Medical Center. Later transported to Temple University Medical Center in Philadelphia, Franzoso was put on life support and placed in a medically induced coma. She is now in a rehabilitation center learning how to walk and talk again.

Jersey Shore First Responders are hosting this fundraiser to help Franzoso afford her costly medical expenses for the long road ahead.

The game will be held on Jan. 5 at Winding River Ice Rink in Toms River. Doors open at 6 p.m. Game starts at 7 p.m. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for students with school ID, and kids 12 and under are free. All donations will go to support Megan Franzoso.
