San Clemente Military Family Outreach

20th Anniversary Fundraising Events

The Salute to Military Stars, SCMFO's major annual fundraiser began in 2016 at a golf club and included entertainment, a silent auction, a social hour and a buffet dinner. In 2020 and 2021 the "event " became a hugely successful On-line auction - thanks to the quality items and the generous people who bid or donated. During 2022 we have created two back-to-back activities aimed at celebrating our 20 Years - which has resulted in truly unique events for all to experience!

On-Line Auction: 
October 30 – November 3, 2022

SCMFO receives approximately 75 donated items from members of the San Clemente and surrounding communities which are included in the On-line Auction.  These items range from retail gift certificates, to spa treatments, clothing, jewelry, sporting goods, event tickets to wonderful get-aways. 

To sign up to donate an auction item or to receive the on-line auction details, please send an email to Judy at:
