Benefit Event for paws4vets to Take Place at Crystal Point Yacht Club in Point Pleasant on Saturday
Brielle, N.J. (March 6, 2019) ― Shore Point Advisors, a Brielle-based wealth management firm, will be hosting its 4th Annual Night Amongst Heroes Gala this Saturday, March 9, at the Crystal Point Yacht Club in Point Pleasant, N.J. The Gala will benefit paws4vets, a division of paws4people, which trains and places specialized assistance dogs with veterans and active-duty service members who are living with psychiatric, emotional or physical difficulties as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TMI) and/or Military Sexual Trauma (MST).
One of the special presentations that will take place on Saturday will be the official naming of a group of puppies in memory of local World War II hero Harry Rockafeller. The puppies will be named “Rocky” in honor of Rockafeller, who recently had a memorial statue dedicated to him at the Police Headquarters in Wall Township, N.J. Led by Wall Police Officer Michael Malone, who is the Chairman of the Rockafeller Memorial Committee, the Wall Township PBA Civic Association spearheaded a fundraising effort that led to the creation and dedication of the Rockafeller Memorial. A portion of those funds are now being donated to paws4vets, with the puppies being named in honor of Rockafeller.
“All of us at Shore Point Advisors are extremely grateful to the Rockafeller Memorial Committee for their generous donation to paws4vets, and it gives us great pride to see the legacy of Harry Rockafeller live on through this program,” said Jason Lamb, Founder & CEO of Shore Point Advisors. “Saturday night is going to be a truly special evening, and this contribution from the Rockafeller Memorial Committee is going to elevate the event to an even greater level.”
