Helping A Vet In Need

By Dan Guarino

Rockaway WISH, the Belle Harbor Yacht Club and the Graybeards are throwing a benefit and inviting everyone to come out and help a vet in need. On Saturday, September 21st, from 7 to 11 p.m. they will host an event at the Belle Harbor Yacht to honor U.S. Army Captain Ben Harrow and raise funds to build a new home for him.

A decorated veteran, Captain Harrow had been deployed to Afgha-nistan. On May 15, 2012, he was leading a team of Green Berets, when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). Harrow lost both his legs above the knee, a large portion of flesh from his right forearm, and two fingers.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Gary Sinise Foundation are building a Smart Home for Harrow and his family. All proceeds will go toward that effort.

Tickets are $50.00 each. There will be food, wine, beer, 50/50 raffles, a Chinese Auction, a DJ and live band. Donations may also be made in Harrow’s name at www.Tunnel2- Towers.com or www.Graybeards.- com. Ticket purchases or questions about donations can be directed to Kevin Judge via KGJudge77@- gmail.com or 718-536-8866 or Christopher McDonald at atc7mcdon@gmail.com or 732-908-0832

The Belle Harbor Yacht Club is located at 533 Beach 126th Street.

All are welcome.
