A fund has been set up at Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange to honor the memory of Brendan Tevlin. The 19 year old Livingston resident was tragically murdered in West Orange on June 25. Shamrock t-shirts and "Good Vibes and Easy Living" bangle bracelets, designed and made in Tevlin’s honor, are available for purchase as part of the fundraiser.

The hand made, hand stamped, adjustable bracelets are currently on backorder. The scholarship was established and the items created in an effort to continue the avid surfer's spirit of "good vibes and easy living." All money will be donated to Seton Hall Preparatory School.
