Rockys Annual Holiday Event
As an Atlantic City native I grew up attending the public schools graduating from Atlantic City HIgh School in 1961. Venice Park school was the first school I attended, living just hundreds of feet away in what was known as the barracks, Government assisted housing for veterans of WWII.
Over the years I have owned and operated several businesses in Atlantic City, including beach chair concessions, Flying Cloud Cafe, Executive Limousine, and PIP Printing during my career of 26 years with the Atlantic City Fire Department retiring as Battalion Chief in 1991. My uncle and father were both A.C. firefighters.
The Christmas holiday spirit has always been special to me and my 4 daughters Sharon, Lori, Jeanine, and Kim. We believe in giving back and sharing in the true spirit of the season.
Our family was recently blessed, as my oldest daughter Sharon and son-in-law AJ adopted Alex, A.K.A "Rocky". Thus, the idea was born to expand by giving back by honoring this blessed event. My daughter Jeanine, a teacher in Galloway and son-in-law Brian, an Atlantic City Firefighter have enthusiastically gotten involved in this event.
Among the 103 pre-school students of Venice Park school are 50 special needs students. The families have also been impacted by the recent Hurricane Sandy.
We are asking for community support to help make this years event as meaningful and memorable as possible. Please give anything you can, whether it be time, finances, and even toys. These children and their families truly need your help.
Checks can be made payable to:
A.C. Student Charity Attn: Heather Hieb Venice Park School 1601 N. Penrose Ave. Atlantic City, NJ 08401
