ABOUT THIS EVENT:

100% of the profits will go to the Semper Fi Fund charity. The Semper Fi Fund has given more than 60,000 financial grants totaling more than $78,000,000 to our service members and their families.
About the Semper Fi Fund (SFF) (http://www.semperfifund.org): SFF is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance and quality of life solutions to Marines and Sailors, as well as members of the Army, Air Force and Coast Guard who serve in support of Marine forces, when they become injured in post 9-11 combat or training operations, or face life threatening illness or injury. Our fund provides relief to qualified service members and their families for immediate financial needs that arise during hospitalization and recovery, as well as perpetuating needs such as home modifications, customized transportation and specialized equipment.
SFF was founded by Karen Guenther, a registered nurse and spouse of an active duty Marine, who had first-hand knowledge of the challenges faced by wounded Marines and Sailors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. She, along with a dedicated group of military spouses established Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund in May of 2004.
