Community Service

The Shore

This was a Hurricane Sandy relief effort I headed where we sold t-shirts and magnets and the proceeds went to help Hurricane Sandy Victims. We donated $300,000 directly to local families in need as well as received, organized and shipped out over $5MM worth of donated goods to local families.

Toms River
Driven to Excellence

We partnered with the Toms River School district from 2016 – 2019 (stopped by COVID) to promote students that went above and beyond, not specifically with grades but with attendance, helping other students and just being a good citizen. The teachers gave out tickets to students when they were caught doing something good for others. At the end of the year we chose a winner of a brand new Chevrolet!

$500K donation to Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus

For the past six years I have hosted and sponsored the Flavors of the Jersey Shore, Food and Wine Event. I host about 400 people at the Pine Belt Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram showroom. The food and wine event is an event to raise money for Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus. The proceeds to Cancer Services.

Toms River
Field of Dreams

Founding sponsor of a special needs playground / sports center. We specifically are the sponsor of the playground where special needs children can play on a playground that they would not otherwise be able to including children in wheelchairs and walkers.

Unpaid School Lunch Balances Paid

For Christmas each year I reach out to the local school districts and pay off any unpaid school lunch balances for underprivileged children/families.

Support and Donation to Valerie Fund

For the past two years I have supported and donated to the Valerie Fund. The Valerie Fund provides comprehensive care to children with cancer and blood disorders and provides individualized care to children at medical centers close to home.
