On April 29th 2017, the 6th Annual Robert Cafici PTSD Benefit, to be held at Mulcahy’s Pub in Wantagh, will allow the Long Island community to remember Robert and all of those like him who have struggled and lost. But the brighter side of this benefit event is that it is also a day of hope in which awareness of those who still struggle in their own minds is brought to the forefront. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is all around us, and Boots on the Ground NY is committed to ensuring that our Heroes receive the help they need. The funds raised by this event will help BOTG-NY continue to expand programs directed at raising community awareness and direct veteran support, including anonymous veteran support groups, the maintenance of our Veteran Activity Center (The VAC), which serves as a place for veterans to find the camaraderie of their peers in a healthy environment, and our veteran outreach programs, such as our food pantry and furniture program.
Boots on the Ground NY and the family of Robert Cafici invite you to join us as we remember Robert and actively work for a brighter tomorrow.
$60 for tickets and at the door, open bar & top of the line buffet. A portion of ticket costs are tax deductible. There is also a huge chinese auction of great items, and a special auction of patriotic artwork made by our own BOTGNY Veterans. A 50/50 style raffle that goes on sale in February and becomes quite a large amount.
All proceeds go towards assisting Veterans coping with PTSD. BOTG-NY maintains a Veterans Activity Center which offers group meetings and sanctuary for Veterans. The building also houses all Boots on the Ground NY programs, including care packages processing, food pantries, and open houses for Veterans of all eras. The VAC as it’s commonly called is known as the place “where Veterans come together”. In November of 2014 the group room was named in Honor & Memory of Robert. The building was opened in April of 2013.
Robert Cafici was a Marine Combat Veteran who lost the battle with PTSD on December 18th, 2007. In 2012 his discharge was rightfully upgraded to an Honorable Discharge. In April of 2012 he was given Full Military Honors at his Memorial marker in Farmingdale. This is his legacy.
