Hometown: Point Pleasant Beach    
Submitted by: Barry Vankat    

Aris is the proprietor of Perk's Café in Point Pleasant Beach and he helped hundreds of people after Hurricane Sandy.

From his cafe, he arranged for people to purchase generators, loaned out his own equipment, obtained gas for generators and was there for complete strangers in need during and after the storm.

His finest heroic moment came on Thanksgiving Day 2012, when he fed more than 200 displaced people at Perk's Café. He provided a home and a family atmosphere for Thanksgiving, including turkey, football games and friendship to people who otherwise would not have had that experience - all at his own expense!
