One of the Most Highly Attended WJRZ Expos Ever!

Posted on February 13, 2015 By

More than 1,600 people attended the 13th annual Women’s Expo 2015 presented by 100.1 WJRZ-FM at the Pine Belt Arena, Toms River, where more than 45 exhibitors had something for just about everyone from give-aways to health screenings and advice, demonstrations, and special appearances. Even Elvis (Richie Santa, Elvis impersonator, Staten Island) was in the house!

Each person who attended received makeup and lotion samples, courtesy of L’Oreal. Jacqueline D., Toms River, won the 13-piece living room furniture set from Michael’s Furniture, Brick. Sniptease Hair Studio gave free haircuts.

Deborah Heart and Lung Center offered a body fat analysis and blood pressure; Monmouth Medical Southern Campus did balance screenings and glucose readings; and Dr. Maryanne Yehl, Immediate Care Medical Walk-In, Toms River, gave a presentation highlighting women’s health tips.

To entice the pallet, there were food samplings, such as cheese and butter from Finlandia; a cooking demonstration from the Ocean County Vocational Technical School, with bean soup and “to go” salads in mini cups; a cake decorating demonstration from Jenni Cakes who showed how to make a cupcake bouquet; Mulberry Street who gave samples and ideas about cooking with flavored oils, and courtesy of TD Bank, a free juice bar with blenders on site making four different kinds of fresh juices.

Attendees were shocked and touched by the performance of internationally known medium Marisa Liza Pell. Tissues had to be handed out as she mentioned personal messages from beyond for people in the audience.

Will people come back next year? Marie Senkeleski, promotions director for WJRZ, Greater Media NJ, said, “As always, this is one of the best FREE events in Ocean County — free admissions, free food samples, free giveaways, free haircuts and more! This was honestly one of the busiest Expos we have had in years. It was just a great day overall. Each booth had a ton of interaction with the crowd.”

The 13th annual Women’s Expo 2015 presented by 100.1 WJRZ-FM was sponsored by Deborah Heart and Lung Center (, Monmouth Medical Center South, Seaview Orthopaedic, TD Bank, and Immediate Care Medical Walk-in of Toms River.
