Wayne has served as a Tactical Flight Officer with the Virginia Beach Police Department for many years, helping to keep it one of the safest cities in America.  The city's use of volunteers helps to save its residents $27 million annually.  Wayne has also been a strong supporter of the Special Olympics, and has served as a volunteer coach for 32 years.  He credits his ability to serve our city to the enormous support of his wife, Ginny.

Tony Pirrone has volunteered with the Virginia Beach Public Schools for eight years, mentoring students in construction trades, donating up to $20,000 worth of granite countertops and cabinets annually, and reviewing grants for the school's foundation.  The public schools system benefits from over 20,000 volunteers each year across its 85 schools and almost 70,000 students.  Tony also volunteers with the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad, serving the emergency medical services (EMS) and as an instructor.  Tony has run 7 marathons and many more half marathons, and credits a post-marathon cardiac arrest with his drive to serve the community.  He points out the importance of serving our younger generation in order to make a better world for us all.
