King of Prussia, PA – Crash Proof Retirement® is pleased to announce a $700 donation to the Semper Fi Fund at their fourth annual PFC Johnny Kihm Memorial Golf Outing to benefit the area’s wounded troops. The event took place on Monday, May 22nd at the Limekiln Golf Course in Ambler, PA and raised $13,500.
Donations are still being accepted on behalf of the event. To donate or for more information visit www.semperfifund.org.
The Semper Fi Fund was established in 2003 by a group of military spouses at Camp Pendleton, San Diego, CA to provide financial assistance and support members of the Armed Forces who are wounded in combat, face critical illnesses, cope with catastrophic injuries. To date, the fund has issued more than 192,000 grants to some 22,000 service members from all branches of the military, providing over $195 million dollars in assistance with medical bills and other expenses.
Don Campanile, Event Volunteer and Committee Member for the Semper Fi Fund, was thrilled to receive the donation. “All of us at the Semper Fi Fund would like to thank Phil Cannella and Crash Proof Retirement® for their generous donation. Without the assistance of our donors, we couldn’t do the important work that we do,” he said.
We’re so proud to be doing our part to help the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who have made so many sacrifices to keep us safe,” said Phil Cannella, Founder of Crash Proof Retirement® and host of the Crash Proof Retirement® Show.
“We applaud the Semper Fi Fund for everything they’re doing today and we look forward to actively participating in their future events,” said Joann Small, CEO of the Crash Proof Retirement®.
Phil Cannella says he feels a special connection to these wounded and ill veterans because he’s seen firsthand how medical bills can absolutely devastate families.
“Back in the 70s, my own grandfather suffered a stroke shortly after retiring. I watched his medical bills pile up and slowly take away everything he had worked for throughout his entire life. It didn’t just affect him. It affected my whole family,” says Cannella. “If I can do something to prevent our nation’s military families from suffering the same fate, I will always be willing to help.”
In addition to his charity work, Phil Cannella also spends his days educating people about matters related to retirement planning. He believes that through informed financial planning, everyone in America can protect their retirement accounts from the ups and downs of the stock market.
Since the market crash of 2008, Cannella his partner Joann Small have taken to the streets to increase people’s financial literacy in the form of Crash Proof Retirement®’s educational events at venues in the Philadelphia 5-county area and Palm Beach County.
They are also co-hosts of the Crash Proof Retirement® Show which airs weekends in the Philadelphia Saturdays at 11am and 1pm on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT AM in Philadelphia and on Legends 100.3 WLML in Palm Beach County.
