EDGEWATER, N.J. — A group of friends from Edgewater and surrounding communities are continuing a tradition of selling treats at the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal to benefit local charities.

Even as friends move out, start their own businesses, and raise their own families, someone always keeps it going.

And this time it was Edgewater native Lauren Murphy.

“I want to keep it going," said Murphy, who now lives in Short Hills.

Homemade corn bread, muffins, cookies, cakes and pies are sold each year for $2 or $3 from each item. Beneficiaries have included toy drives,  Hurricane Sandy victims, Apples U, St. Jude Research and Prevent Child Abuse New York.

The group's collection of a few hundred dollars grew to nearly $700 this past holiday season.

Murphy is already thinking about the 2016 holiday season.

"I’m open to new suggestions every year - maybe even doing a raffle or a basket," she said.

"Of course, proceeds would go to charity.”
