Navy Beach Hosts 5th Annual Fundraiser for Navy SEAL Foundation
Navy Beach honored Montauk’s Naval history and continued its partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation at the fifth annual NSF fundraiser on June 17. The cocktail party kicked off a season of fundraising efforts at the restaurant. This year’s event featured remarks by Mike Zapata, a former US Navy SEAL who deployed multiple times to Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and other locations in the Middle East.
Zapata has been an active supporter of the Navy SEAL Foundation since transitioning out of the military and entering the field of investment management, where he is currently founder and portfolio manager of Sententia Capital Management, a value investing based capital management fund in New York. A percentage of his gains are donated to support family members of fallen SEALs.
Marc Wolf, director of development for the Navy SEAL Foundation New York region spoke to the over 150 guests at the event, which raised over $10,000 for the Navy SEAL Foundation.
Navy Beach will continue its support of the Navy SEAL Foundation and enable guests to support the cause directly each time they dine at the restaurant. From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, a donation of $1 will be added to each dining check in support of the Navy SEAL Foundation with the option to up the value of the donation. Since 2013, Navy Beach has raised $90,000 for the foundation and will match the first $2,500 raised this season.
“Navy Beach is incredibly proud to host our fifth annual fundraiser for the Navy SEAL Foundation. We remain humbled by the service that the SEALs and their families make on behalf of our country, and feel fortunate to raise funds and awareness of the Foundation’s core mission. Our area’s historic naval past, naval base location and tremendous support of the Montauk community and Long Island veterans afford us great pride in our ongoing efforts,” Navy Beach partner, Frank Davis said.
The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families. U.S. Navy SEALs have been in sustained combat for over 16 years, performing hazardous work in unforgiving environments at an unrelenting pace. SEALs are currently deployed in over 35 countries across the globe and spend up to 270 days each year in harm’s way.
This year, the Navy SEAL Foundation received its 5th consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator, a top charity watchdog, for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. 93 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to current or future programs.
