Annual Poker Run:
We actively support the American Legion Riders and the Amvets with the annual Poker Run through a generous donation plus volunteering to help on the day of the event.
Rose Fund: In 1773 during the War of Independence the Marine Corps Rose was dedicated to those Marines who made the Ultimate Sacrifice for their country. This tradition was continued by the French during World War One when the Marines attacked the Germans in the trenches at Belleau Wood. Roses were planted by the grateful French people at the graves of the Fallen Marines. Whenever you see Leaguers or Young Marines distributing these remembrances, take one and wear it proudly. All donations are appreciated. Currently we are fundraising at various Publix supermarkets around the Brandon, Riverview, Bloomingdale and Valrico area thanks to the generous store managers for allowing us to set-up a table in front of their stores.
