Events and Charities
The Wine Country Marines host a number of events focused on supporting and thanking our troops. Our primary event is the Annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Each year we host a elegant ball in honor of the Marine Corps Birthday in Sonoma, CA. This ball is a major fundraiser for the Semper Fi Fund, and we always have wounded warriors as our guest of honor. This year our Guest of Honor is General James Mattis, former commander of the US Central Command (CENTCOM). Also attending are wounded warriors representing the Army, Navy and Marine Corps.
