Membership hosted another great networking mixer at the Claim Jumper in Long Beach on November 7. There were 30+ attendees from both the PMI-LA and PMI-OC chapters, with plenty of conversation, networking, laughter, smiles and fun. The event also kicked off our military outreach fundraiser. Cash donations at the event raised $410 for the Fisher House in Long Beach.
There were some terrific raffle prizes: a one night stay & breakfast at the Hilton Hotel in Long Beach; aquarium tickets for two; a Starbucks card and candle holder; and a Claim Jumper card and candle holder.
Steve Kuykendall from Fisher House gave a summary of the housing accommodations and support services that Fisher House provides to the families of our veterans, so that they can stay near their loved ones in their time of medical need. Not only do they get free housing near the medical facility, but they also provide on-the-go snacks, and even laptops, for children and grandchildren who need schooling during their time away from home.
Our fundraising drive will continue until the end of the year, so please take a moment to donate using the PayPal link on the left side of the website. Let's raise the bar to make this the best support Fisher House receives in 2018! We will present a check at our January Flagship meeting.
Many Thanks to all who helped to make this a successful event for our veterans!
