A city on the Pacific Coast is reaching out to a Jersey shore town with a similar name.
 
Seaside, Oregon, plans on holding several fundraisers to help finance a new entrance for Seaside Heights, N.J., which was heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

  Don Larson, the mayor of Seaside, Oregon, tells radio station New Jersey 101.5 FM that he sees a lot of similarities with the New Jersey borough.
 
Larson says both are coastal towns with tourism driven economies and both are acutely aware of the damage natural disasters mean for them.
 
The Oregon city is planning three fundraisers for Seaside Heights starting March 22, including a Rock and Swim event, a Skate competition and a Pancake dinner and raffle.
 
Most of the events will have a $5 entrance fee.
