1st Battalion, 1st Marines visited Newport Beach again for another successful car wash, raising funds for the Newport Beach 1st Battalion 1st Marines Foundation. The mission of the Newport Beach 1/1 Foundation as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization is to provide community and financial support to the men and families of the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines both during overseas deployments and when training for the next deployment. The 1/1 is currently scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan later this year.
1/1 was formally Adopted by Newport Beach in 2003, and once again, the citizens of Newport Beach and surrounding communities turned out to support the Marines & Sailors of the battalion. Thank you Newport Beach!
Special thanks to Newport Dunes for allowing the Marines to use the car wash facility on their premises, a prime waterfront location to raise funds and have some good clean fun. The event was organized 1stSgt Dennis Nash with 1/1 and Foundation Member Krisztina Scheeff.
A big “Oorah” shout out to Pizzetta Food Truck that came by to provide lunch for the Marine volunteers as well as patrons. Another car wash is being planned a few months from now and a date will be announced soon.
