QSpot’s Grand HOPEning Celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony were held on Sat., July 31, 2021. The event marked the “soft” opening of QSpot’s new location at 1601 Asbury Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ.  New Jersey State Senator Vin Gopal, Assemblymembers Joanne Downey and Eric Houghtaling, along with Asbury Park City Councilmembers Yvonne Clayton, Amy Quinn, and Eileen Chapman were all in attendance.  The QSpot Band, under the musical direction of Eva Szakal, performed live at the event.
