Dine to Donate - Tuesday May 17

Tuesday, May 17, from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Please join us for a Dine to Donate night at Applebee's Restaurant, 156 So. River Road in St. George.  Applebee's, always so friendly to veteran groups, has agreed to donate 10% of the proceeds of the meals of those of us who come in with a certificate indicating we are participating in the Devil Pup fund raising project.  Get your certificate from your e-mail or contact Bill Toole at 652-3998.  Hand the certificate to your server and Applebee's will clip it to your bill and tally up the slips at the end of the evening, donating 10% to the Detachment for our Devil Pup project.  

This is not a 10% discount for your dinner; you will pay the regular price and Applebee's will donate 10% of your check to the Devil Pup project.  It should be a fun night - how could it be better?  No work, just food and fun.

Devil Pups, Inc. is a 10 day camp experience for young people, ages 14-17 and is a non-profit organization designed to help boys and girls from all backgrounds gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their actions.  It is separate from the Marine Corps but is held at Camp Pendleton every summer as space allows. California kids are supported by Devil Pups, Inc., a California non-profit organization.  Marine Corps League detachments in states outside of California, including Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Oregon, support their own Devil Pups - and we've even had pups come to this outstanding program from Scotland.  It changes lives and has become a popular program in this area, with as many as 50-60 applicants for only 10-11 slots for our quota in St. George.
