Navy Beach is honoring their 10th anniversary in business with the Seventh Annual Navy SEAL Foundation Fundraiser continuing the restaurants’ support by raising awareness and funds for the foundation. The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families. On Saturday, June 22nd from 3–5 p.m., Navy Beach will host a cocktail party to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The cocktail party will be the official kick-off to a seventh season of fundraising efforts at the restaurant. This year’s remarks will be provided by Tony Repinski. Repinski is a former Navy SEAL who served our nation for over a decade earning multiple military honors for heroism while conducting hundreds of combat operations.
The event will feature cocktails and snacks from signature Navy Beach favorite menu items. In addition, guests will be able to bid on silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets for several prizes. The cost to attend the event is $50 per adult, $25 for veterans, and free for children under 16 (at the door). Following the event on June 15th, the restaurant will be open for regular dinner service beginning at 5:30 p.m., and reservations are recommended. Discounted advance tickets are available to purchase online at https://bit.ly/2HdIYMj. For those who prefer to purchase their tickets at the door, kindly RSVP for the cocktail party to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supporting the Navy SEAL Foundation Throughout the 2019 Season
Navy Beach will continue its support of the Navy SEAL Foundation throughout the 2019 season, enabling guests to support the cause directly each time they dine at the restaurant. From Opening Day (April 26th) through Labor Day, a donation of $1 will be added to each dining check in support of the Navy SEAL Foundation. Guests will also be able to increase the value of the donation if they like. In an effort to improve upon the $30,000 raised for the Foundation last year ($150,000 since 2013), Navy Beach will again match the first $2,500 raised through this season’s efforts. Donations may also be online via the Paypal button above.
About the Navy SEAL Foundation
The Navy SEAL Foundation’s mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community and its families. U.S. Navy SEALs have been in sustained combat for over 17 years, performing hazardous work in unforgiving environments at an unrelenting pace. SEALs are currently deployed in over 35 countries across the globe and spend up to 270 days each year in harm’s way. The Navy SEAL Foundation stands behind these warriors and their families by delivering comprehensive, world-class programs that specifically address the community’s unique needs. Like the community it serves, the Foundation is a solid, high performing organization committed to excellence. 94 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to current or future programs. This year the Navy SEAL Foundation received its 7th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a top charity watchdog, for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency (top .6% of all rated charities). The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501c3 national non-profit charitable organization TAX-ID 31-1728910 CFC# 11454. The Navy SEAL Foundation is a non-federal entity.

This year’s special guest, Tony Repinski has 17 years of government service in both Naval Special Warfare and the Central Intelligence Agency. He is also an educated writer with an extensive background in literature, creative writing and filmmaking.
Upon graduating from Oak Grove high school in San Jose, California, Mr. Repinski enlisted in the Navy where he set out to become a Navy SEAL, accomplishing this task at the unusually early age of 18. Following the World Trade Center terrorist attack, Mr. Repinski was selected to be a member of Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG / SEAL Team 6), a special duty assignment and Chief of Naval Operations Priority One major command with a classified national mission. Time at NSWDG culminated with attaining the positions of Assault Squadron Team Leader and Master Explosives Breacher.
Mr. Repinski spent over a decade serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan and received multiple high honors for heroism while conducting hundreds of combat operations. After discharging from the Navy, Repinski was hired as a private contractor by the Central Intelligence Agency, whereby he continued to operate in the Middle East. Upon retiring from government service in 2014, Mr. Repinski expanded his knowledge of creative writing by attending film school. It was there that he began his new career as a visual storyteller and continues to write novels and screenplays today. He sticks exclusively to fiction and has sworn never to write war stories, especially those involving real people and true events. Mr. Repinski is currently in post-production on his directorial debut, Heather, a psychological thriller which he also scripted.
Mr. Repinski has never forgotten where he came from and continues to help others fight the good fight. When he’s not writing, he can be found traveling the country in support of NSWDG. Mr. Repinski also puts on an advanced tactics and shooting course for various law enforcement units and federal agencies.
