Several months ago, we told you about Mary Bovich’s involvement with a group helping a young soldier who was severely injured in Iraq. The Brendan Marrocco Road to Recovery Trust is adding to its efforts with a Cigar Night on Wednesday, March 16, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Tiffany’s, 73 Route 46 West in Pine Brook.
Brendan Marrocco served in the same platoon as Bovich’s nephew, Richard Kilcoyne. On Easter Sunday 2009 he lost both arms and both legs in an attack on his patrol vehicle. He suffered numerous other injuries as well, and you can hear him talk about his recovery in the CBS News video below.
Tickets to Cigar Night are $150 each and include a premium brand open bar, dinner, three fresh cigars upon arrival and two custom rolled cigars by Paul DiSilvio of Casa Grande Cigars. There will also be a wide range of door prizes and a silent auction items including tickets to games (Yankees vs. Boston) (Devils), signed sports memorabilia (Jets and Giants footballs, Giants Justin Tuck Jersey), golf for three at Morris County Country Club, an all-inclusive gourmet dinner in your home for eight catered by Michael Conte and a leather smoking chair.
