The Marine Corps held its 12th annual Gathering of Heroes event on Saturday in Philadelphia. The event took place at the 23rd Street Armory in Center City.
All proceeds from the event went toward the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation, which provides a $35,000 educational account for every child who loses a parent serving in the marines or any federal law enforcement agency.
The event was hosted by former Eyewitness News meteorologist and Philadelphia Council of the US Navy League Tom Lamaine with Director Chris Baker (USMC ret.) in attendance.
