Monmouth 2 Supports Wounded Warriors


Members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Patrick Torphy Division continued their Hibernians Helping Heroes Project on Sunday November 10 as one of the sponsors of the Run With Dennis event. Run with Dennis is a 5K Run supporting the Dennis Zilinski Foundation. Dennis was CBA and West Point graduate who was Killed In Action in Iraq in 2005. Since that time, the Zilinski Family has operated the foundation to benefit Wounded Warriors.

Members of Division 2 not only were one of the event sponsors, their Division Pipe Band played at the opening ceremony and 7 members ran the hilly terrain at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel. President Howie Geiler said, “The Run With Dennis is the culmination of their year long Hibernians Helping Heroes project. The Division rasied money, pulled an army tank, sent a soldier to the Yankees game with his family in a limo, collected supplies for military service dogs, held a party to honor those who served and this weekend came out in a big way to honor Dennis and help our Servicemen.”

Participating in the event were: AOH Divsion 2 President Howie Geiler, Mike Hannigan, Rich O’Brien, Jerry Whalen, Pat Quigley, Stacy Handler, Jannine Foy, Mike Burke, Joe Donohue, Rob Hughes, Shane Hughes, John Keat and Jim Shaw
