Blaze on the Beach a Great Success

Posted Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Once again our annual “Blaze on the Beach” fundraiser was a success. Although the number of attendees isn’t where we would like it to be, (only 162 wristbands sold this year) it was still a great day and we raised a lot of money for one of our brothers’ child. We also donated $450 to breast cancer. And during the past few months have given to retired b/c Carl Pinal who by the way is doing great. Thank god!!!

The usual cast of characters always help make this day the success it’s been for the past 18 years.

Big thanks to: Joanne at Bar A and her staff. Always rolling out the red carpet for us and hosting the event for the past 3 years while our “home” for 13 years is being re-built.

Ray Montalvo, Eddie Boa and Del Carr for their DJ abilities. I LOVED the mix of styles and hope we can continue this next year.

The best Pipe and Drum Band around, the Newark Fire Pipe and Drum Band for always having a special moment for us during the day.

We have a host of sponsors to thank and hope that any of these businesses that we mention gets your attention. We need to support them like they do us. Thank you to Iberia’s, Spanish Tavern, Krugs, Seabras food store , Blitz Sports Bar , Dinosaur BBQ, Hispanic Firefighters Assoc, Newark Fireman’s Union, Newark Fire Officer’s Union, The Muse Marketing Group, Tom Szigeti, Don Meier, Vinnie Mautone and Eddie Griff.

Modell’s and Sports Authority have also been generous sponsors of nearly ALL of the door prizes. We hand out discount cards to Modell’s every year and need to use them in order to keep Modell’s as a sponsor. They kick back 5% of sales back to the Blaze. Let’s do our back-to-school shopping there. See Al or Danny for discount cards if you didn’t pick one up.

Blaze Committee: Danny, Al, Damian, Angela and Ray thank you for supporting the Blaze every year and help it to continue to grow. Let it be known that we sold just under 68 dozen tee shirts this year!

Question: If Donovan’s Reef reopens, do we return or remain at Bar A? Your input is very important. Let us know

Yours In Brotherhood,
Al Carlucci
