"By hosting this event for the second year in a row, we have essentially given our employees the opportunity to be a part of a national movement to save our at-risk veterans. We hope that our efforts will encourage others to support this cause as well," said David Kim, Managing Partner of the The Bascom Group.

This successful event was attended by over 100 veterans, with an estimated 30 volunteers. "As a restaurant, we have many opportunities to support charitable causes around the Holiday season. The opportunity to feed Veterans in need is one of the best causes we have become involved with. It was very fulfilling to see men and woman who have provided service to our Country enjoying our smoked turkey and some peaceful fellowship," commented Tim DeCinces, founder of Beach Pit BBQ and Tustin Roadhouse.

"On behalf of the over 100 veterans who attended the luncheon, I would like to thank The Bascom Group for organizing and conducting this 2nd Annual event," said Deanne Tate, President/CEO for Veterans First. "Their generous efforts help reinforce the commitment of our community to show veterans that they are not forgotten."
