New donation to the Semper Fi Fund From Cookbook Sales

I am very happy to inform you that I sent a check for $800 to the Semper Fi Fund this week, resulting from cookbook sales.  We sold 25 cookbooks at the fundraiser at Homestead Gardens, and have received orders from the Marine Corps Museum, USS Midway and the Marine Corps Association.  Since 2009, and thanks to all our supporters, we have raised a total of $87,171, including $6,500 matched by GoDaddy.com from their program to support the Semper Fi Fund.  If you would like to order any cookbooks, please e-mail me at: gladrod@comcast.net.  The cookbooks are only $10/ea. plus shipping via media mail, which is the most economical way.

Our sincere and deepest appreciation to all who have supported our cause and have made these cookbooks very successful.  Thank You!
