Coronado, Hotel, Navy Old Goats Host Wounded Warriors

Coronado, CA (February 21, 2013) - The City of Coronado, Hotel del Coronado and a group of retired naval officers called the Navy Old Goats will host a special reception March 10 for wounded service members at the Coronado Community Center.

The third annual Coronado Wounded Warrior Reception provides an opportunity for four service members who are being treated at Naval Medical Center San Diego and their families to visit and enjoy the City. The reception also allows the community to show its appreciation for their sacrifices.

Each paid reservation helps defray the dinner costs for the four specially selected honorees, their families and their caregivers from Naval Medical Center San Diego's Comprehensive Combat and Complex Casualty Care, or C5, program.

This year's reception will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 10, in the Nautilus Room of the Coronado Community Center, 1845 Strand Way. Guest speakers for the reception will be Coronado Mayor Casey Tanaka and Lt. Jay Redman, a Navy SEAL, a wounded warrior and motivational speaker.

Tickets to the reception are $50 each.
