The money we raised that night will help many of our military families in need.

8/4/2014 - Patti and I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all the sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees at the Montammy Golf Outing honoring our son, Joseph. Your support for the Staff Sergeant Joseph D’Augustine Memorial Fund has enabled us to provide financial aid to injured military personnel, their families, and for two annual Waldwick High School scholarships.
Our son-in-law Mark and our daughter Nicole once again did an outstanding job organizing the event, and, with the help of so many others, the event was a huge success.
A special thank you to Montammy Member Scott Tesser for covering the fees for every Marine who attends the outing. We were truly honored to have eight Marines join us this year, SSGT Kyle Street (wife, Whitney and daughter, Natalee), Gunny SGT Tom Williams, SSGTS Paul Tabisz, Adam Clements, Matt Eatherton, Mike Bentley, Nick Welbourne, and Seth Temple. They were Joe’s brothers, all of whom served alongside him in the good times and in the bad, in hot spots across the globe. Having them there, listening to their stories, their jokes, knowing where they’ve been, where they’ll be going, seeing their smiles, hearing their laughter, we had a bit of Joe back with us last night. For that, we are truly grateful.
Thank you again to all.
Patti and Tony
