Lots Of Money Was Raised For the Police Unity Tour In South Toms River
Saturday was a good day to be in South Toms River! Harry Clayton, owner of Harry’s Smokin’ BBQ and his hard working crew, helped raise money for South Toms River, Pine Beach, and Beachwood Police Department’s Unity Tour team. This is Harry Clayton’s 3rd year throwing this fundraiser.
Extra special thanks to Ryan Matthews, owner of MyGuy Plumbing in Toms River for his generosity. Ryan donated $100 per hour between 10 am and 3 pm to pay for the meals of some unsuspecting customers who attended the fundraiser, including local police officers, E.M.S. and members of the South Toms River First Aid Squad. Ryan also donated an additional $500 to the Unity Tour team.
Sean McNally and Erika Sandi from the MyGuy crew were on hand to lend their support. Sean stayed for the entire event! If you need a good plumbing service, My Guy should be your guy!
Big thanks to John Skulitz, owner of The Crazy Baker on Route 37 In Toms River for his generous donation of the cornbread that Harry used to make his famous deep-fried cornbread, loaded with butter and powdered sugar.
Heather and the crew from the Crazy Baker were on hand with a table loaded with some of John’s delicious baked goods for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Police Unity Tour.
Harry created a special menu for the event. I had the Cuban melt, which consisted of Harry’s famous pulled pork, ham, and melted cheese on buttery bread, toasted on the grill. It was delicious!
My friend and WRAT client, Mike Morris from Riviera Business Systems pulled up on his motorcycle to join the festivities and grabbed the Cajun Sausage for lunch. I saw people going nuts over Harry’s latest creation, the loaded pulled pork baked potato.
I got to meet a lot of people including B.J. Damato from Harry’s Smokin’ BBQ, and her friend Sam who is a huge fan of WRAT.
As busy as Harry was, he did make time to come out of the trailer to say hello to everyone, and I even got a picture or 2 with him.
Team members from Chapter 10 of the Police Unity Tour which includes officers from South Toms River, Pine Beach, and Beachwood will leave on Tuesday May 9th and arrive in Washington D.C. on May 12, 2023. The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds the national Law Enforcement Officers Memorial In Museum.
