Long Beach, NY - June 25, 2015 - The Long Beach Waterfront Warriors have announced that they will hold their Seventh Annual Fundraiser at the Inn, 943 W. Beech Street, Long Beach on Saturday, July 11 from 5pm to 8pm. Proceeds from the event will provide a trip to Long Beach this summer for soldiers who are undergoing treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The Inn will offer an open bar, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment for a $40 entrance fee. There will be a live auction to bid on fabulous prizes along with a 50/50 Raffle to win cash!
RAFFLE & AUCTION PRIZES INCLUDE: Two One-Week Trips to Puerto Rico! Airline Tickets! Mets Tickets! Yankees Tickets! A Custom Bike! Flat Screen TV! Sports Memorabilia including autographed Sean Monaghan Boxing Gloves AND MUCH MORE!!!
The trip to Long Beach is arranged with Walter Reed so that recuperating soldiers and their families can have some well-deserved leisure time here with fishing trips, surf lessons and other beach events, barbecues and a visit to New York City.
“We all look forward to hosting the families, and for those living at Walter Reed, the trip to Long Beach has become a favorite getaway,” said LBWW Co-Chair Gerald Snell. “Thanks to the generosity of residents and local volunteers, we are able to give these heroes a few days away from the hospital environment – something they certainly deserve.”
With the cooperation of the City of Long Beach, LBWW’s will hold a 5K Race for the Soldiers on Sunday, July 19 at 8AM on the boardwalk at NY Avenue. Later that day, the annual Welcome Parade will take place at 3PM from Ohio Avenue to New York Avenue along Beech Street. Bring the entire family out to salute these heroes! Parade is followed by a BBQ at Long Beach Catholic Regional School. All are invited!
Since 2009 the LBWW’s have provided wounded, ill and injured soldiers and veterans with the visit to Long Beach along with emergency medical evaluations, educational support and other important services. With the help of volunteers and donations, the organization has sent hundreds of holiday care packages to soldiers overseas each December. 95% of donations to LBWW’s go directly to support the men and women who have served our country.
