First State Detachment Marine Corps League Semper Fi Bike Raffle

Date Published: Apr-14-2020

First State Deatchment Marine Corps League (MCL) Semper Fi Bike Raffle 

This year will be challenging for MCL fundraising and impact the contributions we make to the charities we support. By now everyone may be aware that due to the Covid-19 virus we had to cancel this year’s 15th anniversary golf tournament. Although the annual golf tournament is a major source of revenue for our Detachment's charitable activities , we do have an opportunity to continue our mission with the Semper Fi Bike Ride scheduled for October 18th on the Ocean City Boardwalk.

The Detachment commissioned a local Bike Shop to build this custom military themed Bike to raffle and award at the October event. The Bike is currently on display at the American Legion Post in Ocean City, Maryland.


Tickets are one chance for $5, three chances for $10 and seven chances for $20.


Raffle tickets are available for anyone by contacting me by email at bobb@namarketinginc.com or calling the Detachment phone at 410-430-7181.

Semper Fidelis
