Navy Beach is honoring Montauk’s Naval history and continuing its partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation to help raise awareness and funds with the fifth annual fundraiser for the organization. The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families. On Saturday, June 17th from 3–5 p.m., Navy Beach will host a cocktail party to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The cocktail party will be the official kick-off to a fifth season of fundraising efforts at the restaurant. This year’s event will include 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 and West Africa. Mike 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.
The event will feature wines provided by Turquoise Life, beer by Montauk Brewing Co. and food from signature Navy Beach favorite menu items. In addition, guests will be able to bid on silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets for several prizes. The cost to attend the event is $50 per adult, $25 for veterans, and free for children under 16 (at the door.) Discounted pre-sale tickets are available online via Eventbrite through June 13th. Following the event on June 17th, the restaurant will be open for regular dinner service beginning at 5:30 p.m., and reservations are recommended. For those who prefer to purchase their tickets at the door, kindly RSVP for the cocktail party to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supporting the Navy SEAL Foundation Throughout the 2017 Season
Navy Beach will continue its support of the Navy SEAL Foundation throughout the 2017 season, enabling 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. Guests will also be able to increase the value of the donation if they like. In an effort to improve upon the $30,000 raised for the Foundation last year ($90,000 since 2013), Navy Beach will again match the first $2,500 raised through this season’s efforts.
