Wednesday, February 14th, was a truly inspirational evening as we attended the Big Give Check Presentation and Celebration! Our American Legion Post 365, VFW Post 7041, American Legion Sons 365 and others recently hosted a Pancake Breakfast for The Three Make A Wish Kids and raised over $3000 towards their goal. Our Local Community worked together and presented the San Diego Make-A-Wish Foundation with a check for $87,692.76. Also, it must be mentioned that Viasat, Inc. and their employees raised $35,000! Tears were flowing throughout the evening as Diana, Leona and Liv received their wishes!

On January 9, 2018, it was raining outside and a drain pipe broke at the Vista Boys & Girls Club due to the volume of rain. The club was flooded, which emphasized the need to replace the roof on the 50+ year old building at a price tag of $250,000.00. There is a fund raising effort in place. On Wednesday afternoon, February 7, 2018, members of the American Legion #365, the VFW #7041 and the Military Order of the Cootie Pup Tent 40, presented checks to the club to help with the new roof fund.
