Every day hundreds of thousands of men and women put their lives on the line to protect our country and preserve our way of life.  Unfortunately, we rarely get a chance to express our gratitude and support our veterans and their families.  On Saturday, May 11th from 2 – 5pm, the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation and the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF) will be hosting our 10th Annual Gathering of Heroes fundraiser to benefit MC-LEF, which proudly funds the education of the children of those who sacrificed all.

This guest bartending event held at the Irish Pub features four Medal of Honor recipients, local government and law enforcement officials, and countless military men and women. Last year, through sponsorships, donations, bartender tips, and silent and live auctions we were able to raise $60,000 for MC-LEF. Through our event, MC-LEF was able to grant two $30,000 scholarships to two children who lost a parent while serving in the United States Marine Corps or any Federal Law Enforcement Agency.

Together, we can express our gratitude to our veterans and their families, and make a difference in the life of a child who lost a parent while serving our country.

Sponsorship commitments must be made by April 29, 2019. For questions please contact Ashley at 215-568-5603 or agallagherTDS@gmail.com
