Moreys Piers Hosts Fundraiser for Fallen Officer


By Herald Staff

WILDWOOD — On Sept. 5, Morey’s Piers will host a public picnic to raise money for the John Pawlowski Memorial Trust Fund and The Fraternal Order of Police Survivor’s Fund.
This past February, the Philadelphia Police Department lost another one of its heroes. Officer John Pawlowski was killed in the line of duty, leaving behind his young wife and their new baby.
Morey’s Piers decided to host the event because of their personal connection to the Pawlowski family. John’s sister, Lauren has been a Morey’s Piers associate since 2004, initially as a seasonal employee, but now as a full time member of the team.
“When one of our team faces a tragedy such as this, we all want to help,” noted Will Morey, CEO of Morey’s Piers. Denise Beckson, director of operations and human relations for Morey’s Piers, echoed this sentiment.
“We value our team members,” says Denise, “our employees are like family here.”
The fundraising event costs $40 per person with net proceeds to support the John Pawlowski Family Trust and the Philadelphia FOP Lodge #5 Survivors Fund. A total of $31 from each ticket sold will be dedicated to the fundraiser and will be split evenly between the two beneficiaries.
The price includes admission to all the piers and waterparks plus a catered picnic at the Rendezvous Beach Pavilion on Mariner’s Landing. The picnic lunch will be served between noon and 2 p.m. Look forward to hamburgers, hot dogs, tossed green salad, corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, potato salad, a beverage selection and a variety of ice cream bars for dessert!
Tickets must be purchased in advance and are only available at, in the “fundraisers” section under “Group Events.” Upon arrival simply exchange your picnic voucher for a wristband at the welcome tent near the entrance of Mariner’s Landing at Schellenger Avenue and the Boardwalk. Check-in time is between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
