2016 TUNNEL TO TOWERS UPDATE

On Saturday September 17th the 3rd annual Jones Beach Lifeguard Team Tunnel to Towers Fundraiser was held at the Scuttlebutt Tavern in Wantagh and we are pleased to announce that over $1200 was raised for this great cause. Thank you to all those who attended our fundraiser and for their participation and generosity. Further, a special word of thanks to Paul Lundwall and his family for hosting the event and all the delicious food their food service provided. It was a memorable evening during which we drew attention to the reason we were all there: remembering those who were lost in the tragedy of 9/11 and also honoring the memory of Chad T. Lundwall (2014 Honoree), 1st Lt. Matthew D. Lynch (2015 Honoree) and this year’s 2016 Honoree Bruce C. Petersen.

The 2016 JBLC Tunnel to Towers commemorative tee shirt designed by Bruce Meirowitz was a great fundraising success as the supply disappeared quickly BUT THERE ARE STILL A FEW LEFT (SHOULD YOU WISH TO BUY A SHIRT CONTACT BOB KOLLAR BY EMAIL AT (bkollar73@yahoo.com). Additional fundraising efforts involved a 50/50 drawing (for the record Kevin Harris, who won the 50/50 prize of $175 donated $75 back to our fundraiser…….a wonderful gesture) and finally a raffle for a gift basket of LOTTO tickets generously donated by Susan Mullane. Thank you to all!!!!!!
