Salute to Military Stars
October 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$60
The San Clemente Military Family Outreach, an all-volunteer, charitable organization that provides compassionate aid to families stationed at Camp Pendleton, invites the community to a fundraising dinner on Friday, Oct. 20. Proceeds from the event go toward the Outreach’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner Giveaway to one thousand military families.
The Thanksgiving Dinner Giveaway is a decade-old tradition. Each year, the Outreach distributes 1,000 turkeys, plus all the fixings for traditional Thanksgiving meal, at the San Onofre commissary. The tradition began when the founders learned that some families stationed on Camp Pendleton could not afford to purchase a Thanksgiving dinner and were too far from loved ones to celebrate the holiday with family.
