San Diego, CA — Pacific Marine Credit Union proudly supported the 7th Annual MCAA Charity Auction and Social onboard MCAS Miramar. The auction event benefited the Semper Fi Fund, a charity that provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities.
The event hosted special guests, including Gen. James Amos, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, Congressman Duncan Hunter, singer Whitney Shay, photographer Chris Brake and other notable guests and veterans alongside Pacific Marine Credit Union’s Chief of Staff, Brad Smith.
During the live, high-energy auction, attendees were offered the chance to help the Semper Fi Fund “Fund-a-Need” with a direct donation. Pacific Marine Credit Union presented a match in donations during this portion of an additional $5,000. This portion of the auction alone produced over $30,000 in donations.
“Pacific Marine Credit Union has been a long-time supporter of the Semper Fi Fund, and sponsoring this auction event was an exciting way for us to continue to give back to the men and women that serve our country,” said Brad Smith.
