Navy Beach Navy SEAL Foundation

Navy Beach in Montauk has announced the results of a seventh successful season of raising awareness for and funds on behalf of the Navy SEAL Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families. This year, the restaurant’s efforts raised $25,000 for the organization, bringing the seven-year total of fundraising for NSF to over $175,000.

This year, the restaurant’s varied efforts included a “dine & donate” program, which ran May 1 through Labor Day during which lunch and dinner checks collected at least $1 per meal while allowing customers to donate additional funds at their own discretion, and an annual cocktail party fundraiser in June that was attended by many local residents and business owners as well as active and retired members of the Naval Special Warfare community.

This year’s event featured Tony Repinski, a former Navy SEAL who served our nation for over a decade earning multiple honors for heroism while conducting hundreds of combat operations. He spoke on behalf of the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Furthering its commitment to supporting local causes, Navy Beach launched a Montauk scholarship program for two graduating East Hampton High School seniors towards their college education.
