For the past 3 summers, Gateway 26 and I partnered to bring a unique opportunity for hockey fans of all ages on the Wildwood boardwalk, and we will revisit this opportunity beginning on Memorial Day Weekend 2015. We have established a fan meet-and-greet, with the opportunity to purchase autographed copies of my book, “Journey Through Risk and Fear,” exclusive, autographed photos, and autographs on items of your choice. First and foremost, we want to thank the loyal fans for joining us the past few summers, making the experience each week a huge success!
Gateway 26 and I will continue to bring you this exclusive experience, starting on:
Saturday, May 23rd, 2015, at Gateway 26 Casino/Arcade from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Gateway 26 is located at 26th Street and Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey.
Autograph with photo opportunity: $20.00
Enjoy The Wildwoods! Can’t wait to see you there!
I’m excited to announce my involvement in my newest charitable endeavor, the Liguori Academy.
The Liguori Academy is a bold new type of High School in Philadelphia. The City’s most disengaged ninth graders will enter a program of aggressive academic growth with personalized curriculum combined with project based specific job training. These are the kids that will otherwise be lost and I am helping the Liguori Academy save them.
The Liguori Academy’s mission is to empower students who are the most at-risk academically in the greater Philadelphia area by encouraging their abilities rather than emphasizing their deficits. The Academy’s comprehensive program of personalized learning integrated with projects co-developed by business and industry partners will provide the motivation and support necessary to ensure success.
I am proud to be one of the founding board members. And with your financial help, we will open in September 2016.

I am honored to have the opportunity to help out a great, up-and-coming, non-profit organization, You Too Animal Rescue, whose main goal is to save, care for, and ultimately adopt stray animals and place them in loving homes.
As an animal lover myself, I thank the members of You Too Animal Rescue for everything that they do. I will be attending their fundraising event at The Rink at Lehigh Valley, located at 3323 7th Street, Whitehall, PA 18052 on Saturday, January 17, 2014 as not only a supporter, but I will be holding an autograph signing from 1pm to 3 pm in which ALL PROCEEDS will go directly to You Too Animal Rescue.
Here’s a bit of information about You Too Animal Rescue:
“After three years of a few volunteers working from their homes, You Too Animal Rescue has recently been officially established as a non-profit organization. In 2014, the small group rescued more than 175 cats and kittens as well as 10 dogs. Any money raised over the years went entirely to help offset some of the vet bills. Food and all other expenses were covered by the volunteers.
Now, with the non-profit status, You Too Animal Rescue will be able to apply for grants and give receipts for tax-deductible donations. They are setting up a donation site on Facebook and also on a website, which is currently being developed. And, hopefully, they will be able to get a building where the animals can be fostered and be on display for adoption. As of now, Endless Supply Company in Wysox has been kind enough to put the adoptable orphans on display, as well as sponsor fundraisers and donate food and other items.
You Too Animal Rescue is thrilled to have Bernie Parent help kick off 2015 by promoting their organization, raffle items and their second annual hockey game against the Flyers’ Alumni Saturday, April 4th at 2pm at the Rink at Lehigh Valley.
In addition to the fun and exciting fund raisers coming up in the new year, You Too Animal Rescue is going to focus on their main goal – spaying and neutering! There are staggering numbers of homeless cats and dogs throughout Pennsylvania and the entire country. Unless something is done to break the pattern, shelters will continue remain overcrowded and thousands will continue to suffer.
They are very grateful for all the help they have received and thank everyone involved in their success. After all, they couldn’t do what they do without you, too!”
Let’s help You Too Animal Rescue achieve continuous success for this great cause! Come out and see us on January 17th!
It’s been months since we’ve seen an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but I vowed to keep the awareness alive and well after all of the hype calmed down.
On Sunday, November 23, 2014, I will be running in the Philadelphia Half Marathon on behalf of the ALS Hope Foundation.
Help me raise money and continuous awareness for this great cause!
