New Jersey 101.5 ‘Pays It Forward’ [VIDEO & PHOTOS]
Last night New Jersey 101.5's Ray The Prize Guy in association with Cheeburger Cheeburger 'Paid It Forward' by having a party for the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter #12 with music, games and food at the VFW post in Oakhurst.
President Chapter Dennis Beauregard entered the organization in the New Jersey 101.5's 'Pay It Forward' party. Which features Cheeburger Cheeburger representatives and some of their unique specialty cheesburgers, wraps and milkshakes for a selected non-profit organization.
Ray The Prize Guy and The Jersey Prize Team brought down the Big Yellow Van filled with prizes for the Vietnam Vets and Cheeburger Cheeburger managers from Holmdel, Brick and Manalapan brought the food. The organization held their monthly meeting and right at the end they passed a motion to donate money from their own funds to our Family Adoption Program.
Once the meeting was over, the music came back on and Ray jumped on the mic and started to play TV trivia games with the members. The party lasted only an hour but every single member personally thanked each and every one of us for coming down and doing this for them. That really made the night, not only did these men serve our country faithfully and proudly but they enjoyed our presence enough to donate to the Family Adoption program and take the time to thank all of us.
The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 12 is a non profit organization that is extremely involved in the community; both civilian and military. The members of this organization (which is roughly 264, and growing every day) helped open a Food Pantry for Veterans in conjunction with the letter carriers of the Middletown Post Office and with support of the Oakhurst VFW. Every month the organization travels to Menlo Park and Walter Reed Hospital to welcome home the veterans.
It's a small token of our appreciation for America's finest but any little bit helps. If you can think of any way you may be able to help our veterans please contact via email Dennis Beauregard at VVA12P@verizon.net.
