CVFC Gala Event in Malibu Keynote Speaker BGen Buz Aldrin, USMA '51, USAF (Ret), PhD, Apollo XI Astronaut (2nd Man on Moon)


Combat Veterans For Congress held its first fundraising event on February 26th and will hold one more fundraising event on September 18th.  The first fundraising event was held in a beautiful Malibu estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  All proceeds for the three events will be used to support the campaigns for the Combat Veterans For Congress.  We have arranged very heavy security for each of the three events with active and retired plain clothes police detectives, sheriff’s deputies, and other law enforcement officers.  The Tea Party Express national organization has made an offer of support, John Phillip Sousa, IV, who is a well known artist, made an offer to donate an American Flag painting to raffle off, and Kazanjian Bros, Inc. donated their fine jewelry creations for a silent auction for the February 26th event.  The Honorary Host Committee for the first event consisted of Connie Stevens (Chair), Hon Barry Goldwater (Congressman Ret), Hon Thomas White (18th Sec. Army & BGEN-Ret), ADM Leighton W. Smith (USN-Ret), VADM Edward Martin (USN-Ret & Vietnam POW), VADM Robert J. Spane (USN-Ret), VADM Harold M. Koenig (USN MC-Ret), RADM Thomas A. Mercer (USN-Ret), RADM George F. Wagner (USN-Ret), RADM Dave Janes (USNR-Ret), BGEN Bert K. Mizusawa (USAR), BGen Buzz Aldrin, (USAF-Ret & PH.D) (Apollo XI Astronaut), Capt. J Michael McGrath (USN-Ret & Vietnam POW),  Cdr. Paul E. Galanti (USN-Ret & Vietnam POW), Lt. Col. Orson Swindle (USMC-Ret & Vietnam POW), Chief Lou Scanlon (Cdr USNR-Ret), Coronado Police Chief, Michael J. Kazanjian (USN) (Kazanjian Bros., Inc.), Reverge Anselmo (USMC) 7 Hills Cattle Co., Christopher Crowe (Writer/Producer/Director), David Ayers (USN-Nuke Subs) (Writer/Producer/Director), Tommy Cook (USMC)(Producer), John Philip Sousa, IV, Chad Everett, Wink Martindale, Alex Trebek, Dick Van Patten, Robert Conrad, Grant Show, Jack Scalia, and Tony Lo Bianco.  

We seek your support for fiscally conservative Combat Veterans For Congress who we endorse to replace the Congressmembers in office who continue to demonstrate their out of control and wasteful spending habits. If you are able to make a donation or to attend one of the fundraising events it would be greatly appreciated.  Donations should be mailed to:
