ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Julio's Pizza Co., a popular Atlantic Highlands, NJ restaurant, generated $400 in donations for the Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad with a recent fundraiser.

During the day-long event, a portion of the proceeds from sales at Julio’s was earmarked for the all-volunteer emergency medical services operation. AHFAS members were on hand throughout the event providing free blood pressure checks, displaying new medical equipment the Squad has in service, and talking about the benefits of becoming a member.

“This was a wonderful event and the support from Julio’s Pizza Co. was amazing,” said Ed Cetron, chief of the AHFAS. “We had a great day meeting with customers and sharing conversations about our organization. Every dollar from this fundraiser goes toward purchasing medical supplies and maintaining our ambulances. We appreciate the help from our community and from the team at Julio’s that made this happen.”

“This is amazing on our end, we just wanted to support and bring awareness to such an important part of our community,” said Erin Willett and Brendan Smith, owners of Julio’s Pizza Co. “The Atlantic Highlands First Aid Squad is made up of such incredible locals that do such important work as volunteers and it was our pleasure to give them a platform. Community is all about supporting each other, and that’s part of our mission here at Julio’s.”

“We’re grateful for everyone at Julio’s and our friends in Atlantic Highlands for supporting this fundraising event,” said Bill Mount, president of the AHFAS. “This is another example of what makes our community so special.”

The AHFAS is an all-volunteer emergency medical and rescue services operation that operates on the generous donations from the borough and its residents.
