Every day hundreds of thousands of men and women put their lives on the line to protect our country and preserve our way of life.  Rarely do we get a chance to express our gratitude and to help veterans and their families.  On Monday April 10th, the Irish Pub and The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF) will be hosting the 8th Annual Gathering of Heroes fundraiser, a guest bartending event held at the 20th St Irish Pub to benefit MC-LEF.

What is MC-LEF…  MC-LEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that donates all money to scholarships for the children of Marine and law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country. 98% of the donations MC-LEF receives are used to fund programs for the children they serve.

Last year… We commemorated  the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War with a tribute to the man who snuck into Vietnam to buy his friends a beer, making it the “Greatest Beer Run Ever”. We recreated this with the “Shortest Beer Run Ever” from the Irish Pub on 12th and Walnut to the Irish Pub on 20th and Walnut. Accompanying those men were three Medal of Honor Recipients as well as many other veterans and active and retired military personnel.
