The Daley Grind

Jetty Team Rider Tim Daley has been named the Deputy Office of Emergency Management Coordinator for the City of Brigantine (NJ). At first glance this seems like just another job title, but think about this: Daley introduced the idea of adding Narcan to Brigantine’s fire trucks & ambulances earlier this year, and within one hour the opioid overdose reversing drug saved a life! You can read the Press of Atlantic City article here. Tim is the quintessential Jetty Team Rider and we’re so thankful to have him as a part of our family!

Atlantic Oil Drilling

Offshore oil drilling in the Atlantic ocean is becoming a reality, and we’re urging you to be informed! Our marine environment, coastal economy and the risk of a catastrophic oil spill are major topics of concern. The Surfrider Foundation was able to force the addition of one more hearing at the Sheraton (Atlantic City, NJ) on March 18, 2015 from 3-7pm ~ Check out the Facebook event here.

Here are a couple of articles to help you form/voice your own opinion…

JRF Get Rad! Scholarships

Even before the Jetty Rock Foundation was formed, we felt the need to participate in Southern Regional High School‘s scholarship night! Recently, we fortunately had the funds to grow the scholarship offerings a bit, but we also wanted to require some work on the student’s end. The March 15, 2015 deadline is fast approaching, and we’re hoping that more students throw their hat into the ring for one of these (3) available $1000 JRF Get Rad! scholarships!

Rock Pillars: Superhero Edition

We truly cannot thank our Jetty Rock Foundation donors enough! Even with a slow, freezing start to 2015, certain individuals have made it a point give back to our community through our 501(C)3 nonprofit. These guys would never ask for a blog post, or even to be mentioned for that matter, but their willingness and dedication simply has to be recognized. We are so appreciative that our friends have helped the Jetty Rock Foundation live on beyond Sandy, where it originally drew a majority of its funding. Give these guys a high five when you see them, buy them a drink, and follow their amazing example of community leadership & charity! What surfer stereotype…

Equity Prime MortgageSteve Carpitella
Equity Prime has donated $25 for every loan closed to our Foundation (and has the same deal with David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation). They donated $775 in January and $1125 in February! Steve & Melissa recently spent time in CA for some amazing swell!

The Law Office of William WrightWilliam Wright
At this point we are hesitant to even ask this guy to sponsor our events…because he sponsors them all! From the Coquina & Clam Jam, to massive support for Hop Sauce, Bill is showing his daughter Noelle what giving back is all about. Bill & Jill even had friends and family bring donations to Baby No-No’s recent birthday party in lieu of gifts!
