As part of our commitment to support the military, we have chosen to work closely with the Chester County Marine Corps League Detachment #286 based in Downingtown, PA. For several years, Sporting the Stars has helped the #286 with their annual golf outing, volunteering time and donating prizes. The event is one of their biggest fundraisers and the money raised is put to very good use in our area. We will continue to support the golf outing in an effort to maximize its profits.
We want to do more, so we will be offering select sports autographed memorabilia items, with Marine inscriptions, making the items “special” to the Marine Corps, with 100% of the profits going to the #286 Marines. Furthermore, we have chosen the #286 Marines as a featured charity on our new website, SportingtheStars.com. If the buyer selects the Marines charity we will donate 5% of any internet sale to Detachment #286.
This outstanding group of fine Marines lives up to their reputation of being the few and the proud. They have served our great country and now continue to serve our community by supporting families of individuals who have worked with veterans and their families for many years.
Working in association with the USMC, the Chester County Marine Corps League Detachment #286 is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization comprising more than 150 local active and non-active duty US Marines and Navy Corpsmen.
They graciously volunteer their personal time to support service men and women through a variety of programs including the VA Hospital, Wounded Warrior Program, Color Guards for funerals and community events, Toys for Tots in Philadelphia and Honor Flight programs. In addition, they offer children’s hospice through the Devil Dog Program, West Chester Veterans Council, and overseas active duty support, as well as providing scholarship programs through the Used Flag Retirement program.
