Quad State Herf 14 - August 3rd, 2019


" Herf King "
It's that time of the year again where we announce the year's Quad State Herf - Wings for Warriors fund raiser. The date will be Saturday, August 3rd, from 1000 (10am) until dusk (roughly 2000 / 8pm) and the location again is West Point's Recreational Area - Lake Frederick. As always, it will be a day of relaxation, enjoying great BBQ (prepared by Sean Keever and his crew - Big Guns BBQ) and a number of outdoor events, i.e., volleyball, horse shoes, swimming, kayaking and much more.

The cost to attend this year's event is $75.00 per person (same as the last few years). The benefit of the event again this year will be "Wings for Warriors", https://wingsforwarriors.org/ as well as the "Hudson Valley Honor Flight", https://hvhonorflight.com.

As always, the first 250 guest will receive a very nice "goodie bag" and there will be plenty of stuff being raffled off at the event.

Below is the address for Lake Frederick as well as their website:

1849 Lake Frederick Rd, Woodbury, NY 10930

Well, that didn't take long. SOLD OUT as of 0430. I'll update the Guest List and start the Stand By List. This year, you'll need a per-purchased ticket to attend.
Thanks Charlie. Always look forward to this! Worth the trip up from Myrtle Beach every year.
How do we go about renting one of the cabins.

I heard through the grapevine that our dear friend Israel Markevitz aka: Uptown Issy will be attending this year's event. Always a pleasure to see our brother and it's been a long time. I've updated the list to add a couple of more sponsors, once Cigarfest is over, I'll be busy contacting potential sponsors then........ :)
