Support Local Military Families
At the San Clemente Military Family Outreach (SCMFO), we are gearing up for our annual fall fundraiser, the Salute to Military Stars! All proceeds from the 2020 Salute to Military Stars will support our ongoing programs and emergency assistance to local military families. You may have heard about our signature event, an annual Thanksgiving fundraiser, where we distribute 1,000 turkey dinners to young, enlisted families stationed at Camp Pendleton.
Due to social distancing precautions, our 2020 fundraiser will be an online silent auction, taking place from October 23rd to 30th. We are seeking donors from the community and local businesses to the silent auction and sponsors to help offset the cost of the event.
Sponsorships range from $250-600. We will thank our sponsors in daily video addresses on the week of the auction. Each sponsor will be showcased one day in a video from our celebrity emcee, comedian Ron Ruhman. You will also be featured in our Salute to Military Stars marketing, including the SCMFO website, Heartlights newsletters, select event announcements, and auction website. Our top sponsorship of an opportunity drawing will be heavily featured to encourage donors to register for the auction. Click here for additional details about our sponsorship opportunities.
Our silent auction is the key driver of our fundraiser. Anything you can donate — goods, services, sports or theater tickets, golf outings, resort stays, dinners out (at restaurants with patio dining!), you name it — will be much appreciated and fully tax-deductible. Additionally, you and/or your business will be highlighted on the auction site all week and on our daily email/YouTube messages, promoting our cause, encouraging bidding, and generally keeping bidders informed about SCMFO and the families we serve.

Since 2002, SCMFO has been actively supporting our dearest neighbors – the enlisted Marine families of Camp Pendleton. Whether they need the emergency provision of food, gasoline, medical costs, emergency travel, or school supplies, SCMFO is here to help military families in our community. SCMFO is an all-volunteer non-profit (501c3) and your sponsorship or donation is tax-deductible.
