Last year Toms River Regional Schools committed to a five-year partnership with RWJBarnabas Health on naming rights for the 20,000-square-foot arena on the campus of High School North. The agreement is worth $637,500—the largest cash sponsorship in district history (and believed to be the largest in state history for a public school district)—and includes health and wellness initiatives that will connect leaders and mentors at the medical institution with TRRS students.
Since the contract was made official, a temporary sign was placed on the building's facade. Today, official signage was installed, branding the building as RWJBarnabas Health Arena.
Last week the district announced that the arena will be managed by Count Basie Center for the Arts and Count Basie Presents.
