2024 Salute to Service 8/8

In 2024, The Cpl. Christopher Kelly Willis Foundation is excited to partner with the Kalamazoo Growlers for "Salute to Service Night" as they take on the Royal Oak Leprechauns!

Join us for an evening dedicated to honoring the brave men and women of our armed services and supporting their families. The Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis Foundation invites you to partake in our partnership with the Kalamazoo Growlers of the Northwoods League.

During this special event, we will have the privilege of presenting scholarships to Catherine, Allison, and Brian Raible. They are the children of U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Christopher K. Raible, an American hero who was killed in action on September 14th, 2012, while leading a counterattack against enemy forces in Afghanistan.

Lt. Col. Raible's dedication and bravery were recognized with numerous military honors, including the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and Combat Action Ribbon. He epitomized the spirit of service and sacrifice.

Join us as we honor Lt. Col. Raible's legacy and show our support for his children's future. Your attendance and support will make a meaningful difference in the lives of these deserving young individuals.

Thank you for standing with us in honoring our nation's heroes and ensuring their families are supported.
