Mad Batter Cape May Honors Veterans

Mad Batter Cape May Honors Veterans

Last week on the Cape May Locals radio program we reported that the Mad Batter Cape May honors veterans every year around the holiday. This year was no exception.

The legacy of Harry Kulkowitz, founder of the Mad Batter and WWII veteran left a lasting impression on Mark Kulkowitz and his son Kyle.

“Giving back to these veterans is the least we can do,” Mark Kulkowitz said. His father Harry was born in 1924, passed away in August at the age of 92. He had been recognized by then President Barack Obama at D-day memorial services.  

Veterans from all over Cape May County gathered with dignitaries Thursday night at a private dinner at the Mad Batter. Hosted by the Kulkowitz’s the dinner brought former WWII POW’s and active duty Coast Guard personnel.
