We continue our on-going series “Homeruns For Heroes”

All season designated military-related charities will get donations when BlueClaw players hit homeruns as part of a joint partnership with the OceanFirst Foundation.

2013 is the fifth year of the program which, through 2012, raised over $100,000 for local military-based charities.

The Lt Dennis W Zilinski II Memorial Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization was created and founded in 2006 by a group of very close friends of Dennis in order to honor his memory and spirit for life. An all volunteer twelve member Board of Directors was established to direct the Memorial Fund. In ones lifetime sometimes we are fortunate enough to meet someone who has the ability to affect our lives forever; this was Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II.

Their mission is to honor the life and memory of U.S. Army Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski, II. They provide support to improve the morale and welfare of members of the United States Armed Forces and their families. Additionally, by providing scholarships, the Fund invests in the future of high school students who embody the leadership qualities and community spirit of Lt. Zilinski.
