The Long Valley community came together again to support one of its own on Sunday afternoon, enjoying the Festival of Hope at Ort Farms.
The festival was a benefit for Glenn Lightner, a 13-year-old Long Valley resident who has been battling brain cancer since 2007.
Proceeds from the event topped $11,400, according to one of the event's coordinators, Leanne Ajbuszyc. Approximately 300 attendees dropped in and out of the live entertainment event as the day went on, Ajbuszyc said, and was aided by nearly 100 volunteers.
Bands from the area kept live music playing throughout the five hour day and local restaurants offered discounted food.
