Friends of Smuggler's Cove

Our names are Bob & Lyn Higgins and we are setting up this fund for our dear friend Rich Lepore.  He lost his business in the February 6th, 2015 fire in Ocean Grove, NJ.  What makes his loss even more devestating is that in addition to losing his livelyhood he is also battling cancer.  With the loss of income the medical bills not covered by his insurance are adding up.

If eveyone reading this could spread the word through their e-mail address book and/or facebook we would really appreciate it.  Our initial goal was $5000 but we surpassed that and are nearing $10K, and will keep going!  We held a great fundraiser on April 11, 2015 at St. Stephen's Green in Spring Lake Heights and Rich & Terry were there to thank their supporters. 

Please be as generous as you can, but any donation will be appreciated.  We thank you on behalf of Rich and his wife Terry.
