The Frohnhoefer family of Sea Tow will be honored for their fundraising efforts tonight.

Sea Tow International founders Captain Joe and Georgia Frohnhoefer will be honored during a fundraiser for the San Simeon by the Sound Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation at Founders Landing in Southold from 4 to 6:30 p.m. tonight.

“Both Capt. Joe and Georgia Frohnhoefer are pillars of the community and have an unwavering interest in serving the public,” said Andrea Parks, San Simeon’s director of development. “They were a great choice as honorees for San Simeon, which also is active in serving the community at large.”

Mr. Frohnhoefer was chosen as The Suffolk Times Businessman of the Year in 2005. He created Southold-based Sea Tow International, which helps boaters stranded out on the water, and has offered its services in much larger emergencies.

In 2005, 50 Sea Tow employees spent more than three months helping the Coast Guard recover vessels scattered by high winds and turbulent waters during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. That year, Sea Tow International claimed more than 145,000 members in 110 locations.

Sunday’s event will feature a raw bar by Southold Fish Market, hors d’oeuvres by Christopher Michael of the Jamesport Country Kitchen and music by the Trevor Davison Orchestra, as well live and silent auctions.

“It’s going to be a beautiful day,” said Ms. Parks. “I’ve already checked the weather and it’s going to be absolutely lovely.”

For tickets or more information, contact Ms. Parks at 477-2110, ext. 252, or aparks@sansimeonbythesound.org.

Opened in May 2010, San Simeon by the Sound Nursing and Rehabilitation Center’s Adult Day Health Care Program provides daytime medical care for those in need, enabling them to remain living in their homes while still getting the assistance they need. The program’s motto, “Keeping families together, longer,” sums up the program’s mission and goal.

The program is available from one to five days, as needed. “Our health professionals work with the registrant’s doctor to manage their medical needs while offering case management, social work, nutritional counsel, recreational programs and professional nursing,” said Emily Clark, director of development.

Clients have access to medical professionals such as the dentist, optometrist and podiatrist, as well as physical and occupational therapists.

San Simeon offers door-to-door transportation, and program costs can be covered by Medicaid or paid through private funding or certain long-term health insurances.

San Simeon by the Sound Adult Day Health Care is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Visit them online at sansimeonbythesound.org.
