  Fourteen-year-old Julianne Hendrickson and her 9-year-old sister, Emily, were killed in a plane crash Aug. 6 in Sitka, Alaska.   Their father, Robert Hendrickson, 45, of Spring Lake Heights, and his fiancee, Linda Khudair, 34, of Wall, also were killed.

   The Hendrickson Fund's mission is to break the cycle of poverty and welfare through outdoor experiential education, according to the event flier.The event raised more than $3,000.

   Lu Stierman, an event coordinator, said the event is planned to become annual. "It's really amazing to look out there and see how many people came out," Stierman said.

   The sun was shining, and dancers were comfortable wearing T-shirts in weather that was unseasonably warm in contrast to the snow earlier in the week.

  Kevin Kennedy, 52, of Toms River stood on the boardwalk at Fifth Avenue watching his wife and 12-year-old daughter, Olivia Kennedy, among a swarm of other participants.
   "I think anytime you get people together for a community event, it has a positive outcome," Kevin Kennedy said. "You're creating goodwill, and during times we have right now, that is what we need."
