The San Clemente Military Family Outreach, SCMFO, on Oct. 25 hosted its fourth annual Salute to Military Stars fundraiser at Talega Golf Club, where the group recognized several organizations that have contributed to its mission of providing emergency assistance to military families in need.
This year, SCMFO granted its Star Supporter recognitions to Mary’s Feast, the Southern California Chapter of the Marines Motorcycle Club, the Knights of Columbus at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, global consulting firm TriVista, American Legion Post 423, and No Small Potatoes Catering.
SCMFO also honored Judy Franz, the vice president of the SCMFO Board of Directors, with a Star Volunteer award for chairing several of the organizations’ morale events, including an annual baby shower and a tea for moms and children.
“It was a fantastic dinner. Everyone who volunteered did a great job,” SCMFO President Clark Lashmett said in a press release.
According to the release, local dignitaries who attended the event included Councilmember Kathy Ward and former Mayor Wayne Eggleston, who founded Park Semper Fi to honor San Clemente’s relationship with the Camp Pendleton Marine Base.
