Parks are where we build dreams together
Local real estate agency, the DeBernardo Team, has raised $20,000 of their $100,000 goal to remodel the well-used and much-beloved Hidden Beach Playground located in Aptos.  The DeBernardo Team is dedicating their efforts to raise the funding in tribute to Jett Ramsey, a 5 year old who passed away from cancer in April during Shelter in Place.  Jett was the son of longtime Aptos residents Amy and Chris Ramsey and brother to Jack and Christian. 

While overwhelmed with grief at the loss of Jett, the team has been humbled by the outpouring of love and support of the community to honor Jett’s battle against cancer.

Inspired by the community’s generosity and to celebrate Jett’s life and his impact upon all of us, the DeBernardo Team will host a virtual event on You Tube Live to raise the final $80,000 for the playground on June 11, 2020 from 5 to 6 PM.  

“We are going to cry, we are going to laugh, and we are going to make sure the new Hidden Beach Park Playground will be built so Jett’s memory and energy lives on!” says Frank DeBernardo of the DeBernardo Team.

Mariah Roberts, Executive Director of County Park Friends says, “We are humbled to be a part of this outpouring of love for the Ramsey Family. We gather virtually now, so we can create a place that connects families for generations to come.”
