Congratulations to the big winner, Sherry Kennedy, of North Carolina!
In December 2011, PS Charities hosted the first of many fundraising events to build a house for a wounded Marine and his family. Just before wrapping up that first event we received an unexpected donation—A custom built OCC Chopper! Here at PSC, we are fortunate to have many kind and generous donors but this guy takes the cake, giving us a valued toy from his own collection. … [more]
After months of hard work, the Fourth Annual NC Charity Golf Tournament came and went, raising $50,000 toward the Build A House Project!

100% of every dollar raised goes directly to the cause. A special thank you to the golfers, 20 volunteers, and over 50 sponsors and donors who made the event a huge success! See you next year! … [more]

Last Saturday night was our second and last hockey happy hour at the Front Page in Arlington in support of our Build A House Project. The turn out was great! We had lots of people there ready to cheer the Capitals on to victory and see if they won lunch with Nick Backstrom and Marcus Johansson. I had received several calls that day about people wanting to get last minute tickets and support the cause!
At the event, we had several people come up and just donate to the cause. We even had one Marine, currently serving, come to our table to learn more about the cause and donate some money.
