FARMINGDALE – The Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski Memorial Fund will be hosting an 8th Anniversary Gala titled “A Toast to Dennis – A Night of Remembrance” on September 23 at the Eagle Oaks Country Club, 20 Shore Oaks Drive, Farmingdale, from 7 p.m. until midnight.
The gala will celebrate the life and memory of Zilinski, as well as honor those from Monmouth County who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks. A donation of $150 per person is required for an invitation to the event, which will include a cocktail hour, sit-down dinner, dancing with music by The Infernos, and much more.
The event will also feature a reverse auction to assist the Fund in sponsoring service dogs for warriors suffering from PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries. Several warriors who have returned from combat are expected to attend the affair.
Distinguished honorees are Randy and Maureen McDonald of Red Bank, Joseph and Miriam Tort of Rumson and Quentin and Ellen Walsh of Sarasota, Fla.
“These three couples were chosen for their dedication and continued support of the mission and continued growth of the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Memorial Fund,” said Marion Zilinski, mother and committee member.
