When & Where
Operation Chillout c/o Anthony F. DeStefano MAJ, USAR (Ret)
OPERATION CHILLOUT Founder and Director, Deacon Ray Chimileski would like to introduce Major (Retired) Anthony F. "Tony" DeStefano - an Army veteran of 24 years Reserve Service with Active Duty during the Post 9/11 period in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
His interest in the plight of homeless veterans led him to join in the work at OPERATION CHILLOUT in the year 2004. He has risen in the organization to become the Homeless Veterans Outreach Coordinator. Having been a professional musician for years prior to his ARMY service, he was drawn to the promotion of the four musical events undertaken so far. The Inaugural OPERATION CHILLOUT Homeless Veterans Benefit Concert in 2011, held at the famous Stanhope House, was a great success - as was the second Annual OCO HVBC the following year. Having outgrown the indoor venue, we moved to the friendly confines of Vasa Park in 2013 and have been there ever since. The 2017 event will be a FREE WILL DONATION for Entry! Give what you can and enjoy the day!!
This year we are continuing the outdoors tradition of the past several years in a festival atmosphere and a much bigger event. We sincerely thank all who are helping, promoting,performing, sponsoring, and attending VETS SUMMER FEST 2017. Homeless veterans in New Jersey are waiting for our supportive services and rescue... all BECAUSE OPERATION CHILLOUT WAS THERE!
