The 12th Annual BTB Mako Rodeo
was held in Brielle, NJ on June 14th & 15th 2013
The Brett T. Bailey Foundation began in 2001 in memory of Brett Bailey, who was lost to us, as a result of the horrific events of September 11th. Out of the ashes of that darkest of days, rose a Foundation, formed by the Family and Friends of its namesake, committed to the support and encouragement of prosperity and freedom.
Currently, the Foundation has dedicated its fund raising efforts primarily toward assisting the families of our volunteer New Jersey National Guard. Who have been selflessly waging the war on terror for the better part of a decade.
In 2007 the Foundation received the Governor’s Award from Gov. Jon Corzine for its outstanding service to New Jersey and the Nation. The Foundation is the largest single private contributor to the men and women of the New Jersey National Guard and their families.
The difference that your contributions make, in preserving peace of mind, for those away from their families, fighting overseas, are immeasurable. The Foundation’s highly successful annual fundraiser is the BTB Mako Rodeo, held every year in the month of June. Last year the Foundation, through the efforts of those who participated in this event, awarded $17,275 in prize money, auctioned off over $10,000 in prizes and raised over $20,500 for charity. In addition to the NJ National Guard Family Readiness Council, the Foundation has made Donations to : Ladder Company #1 , Doctors Without Borders, Seton Hall Prep, The Hole in the Wall Gang, Lance Armstrong Foundation just to name a few. In Brett’s memory and on behalf of those serving in sacrifice, The Brett T. Bailey Foundation thanks you for your thoughtful contribution.
All contributions are tax deductible as the Foundation is a registered 501c3. Checks should be made out to the Brett T Bailey Foundation @ Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund and should reference the Brett T. Bailey Foundation in the memo line and can be sent to:
