A Day of Remembrance for Aviv Henry BoazSeptember 13, 2016 | By: Sean Murray
On a day that America salutes its first responders, family and friends gathered in Hillside, NJ this past Sunday to raise funds for Hatzalah of Union County while honoring the memory of Aviv Henry Boaz, a former associate of Yellowstone Capital that recently passed away.
Hatzalah is an all-volunteer ambulance squad with many chapters around the country. According to Chief Yudi Abraham, the Union County chapter is actually the largest with 23 EMT responders, 13 dispatchers and 3 ambulances. Funds raised from the event enabled the chapter to replace an ambulance that was very old with a brand new one.
Emblazoned on the side is a dedication to Boaz. His father actually flew in from Israel to bear witness to it. Chief Abraham said the day was about “the tribute to Aviv Henry Boaz.”
Isaac Stern along with Yellowstone Capital’s family and friends made the day possible. “Yellowstone Capital is our largest supporter financially,” said Abraham. And what better way to honor Boaz than to make him a part of something that will help save lives, he added.
More than $80,000 was raised on Sunday.
