On Saturday, June 22, from 3 to 5 p.m., Navy Beach is honoring their 10th anniversary by hosting their Seventh Annual Navy SEAL Foundation Fundraiser.
The annual benefit raises awareness and funds for the immediate and ongoing support of the Naval Special Warfare community as well as their families.
"The Navy SEAL Foundation emulates the community it serves: it is quiet, stealthy, nimble and is able to quickly react to the needs of the NSW force and their families, whenever and wherever the needs arise," Marc E. Wolf, Navy SEAL Foundation Director of Development, Northeast Region, relayed. "Navy Beach Montauk and their team understood and grasped this six years ago when they launched their first event to benefit the Foundation, and we have been proud partners ever since. What better a place to celebrate and raise awareness than Navy Beach?"
The event will feature cocktails and snacks from signature Navy Beach favorite menu items. In addition, guests will be able to bid on auction items and purchase raffle tickets for several prizes.
This year's remarks will be provided by Tony Repinski, a former Navy SEAL who served our nation for over a decade earning multiple honors for his heroism over the course of hundred of combat operations. Repinski is also an educated writer with an extensive background in literature, creative writing, and filmmaking.
"Being our tenth anniversary this year for Navy Beach, we reflect on many highlights. Our ability as a business to honor and support the Navy SEAL Foundation remains at the top of the list," Frank Davis, Partner Navy Beach, reflected. "The historic roots of Navy Beach's location as a Naval Base in World War II provides an interesting and motivational backdrop to our ongoing efforts."
Admission to the Seventh Annual Navy SEAL Foundation Fundraiser is $50 per adult, $25 for veterans, and free for children under 16. Discounted advance tickets are available for purchase online at www.eventbrite.com
Additionally, now up until Labor Day (September 2nd), a donation of $1 will be added to each dining check in support of the Navy SEAL Foundation, enabling guests to support the cause directly each time they dine at the restaurant. However, guests will have the option of increasing the value of their donation if they wish to. So get out there, enjoy some good food, enjoy some even greater company, and support a great cause. To all of the veterans out there, we salute and thank you for your service. Cheers to you!
"The strong support of Montauk and the East Hampton communities along with Long Island's veterans, continues to help drive us in our support," Davis said. " In our seventh year of support for the Navy SEAL Foundation, we have had the opportunity to meet several members of the SEAL community who have benefited from our efforts and we remain tremendously grateful for this opportunity."
