Navy SEAL Museum Benefits from the Busch Family Foundation’s Tenth Annual Wild Game Dinner

The Navy SEAL Museum is pleased to announce a charitable contribution from The Busch Family Foundation in support of the Trident House Charities Program. The donation came from the proceeds from the Foundation’s Tenth Annual Wild Game Dinner.

The October 8, 2021 event was held at the St. Lucie Fairgrounds in Fort Pierce, Florida. Despite the challenging weather conditions, a large crowd turned out to enjoy a top-shelf open liquor bar, bottled and draft beer, and an exotic dinner prepared by the some of the best local chefs. The evening also included a live tactical demonstration and live auction.

“We remain thankful for the support of our friends at the Busch Family Foundation,” said retired Navy SEAL Grant Mann, Executive Director of the Navy SEAL Museum. “The Busch Family Foundation and Southern Eagle Distributing are committed to a mission similar to ours–they care deeply about the preservation of history, heritage, and community, and about service to country. Their donation will directly impact the families we serve as part of our Trident House Charities outreach.”

The Busch Family Foundation was founded for the purpose of giving back to the local community. Through the years, the Busch Family Foundation has committed a great amount of time and financial support to local charities, including the Navy SEAL Museum. The Museum’s longstanding partnership with Southern Eagle Distributing and the Busch Family Foundation has facilitated direct support for Special Operators and their families for more than a decade.

“Southern Eagle Distributing and the Busch Family Foundation proudly support the Navy SEAL Museum, their mission, and their unmatched dedication to preserving and sharing history,” said Philip A. Busch, President of Southern Eagle Distributing. “We were thrilled to host a one-of-a-kind demonstration and extraction by the Navy SEALs at the 10th Anniversary Wild Game Dinner. Our guests are still talking about the experience almost a year later. The growth of the museum is a point of personal pride, and it has been an honor to contribute funds that have helped to immortalize the great service and sacrifice of such elite servicemen. If anyone in our community has not yet visited the Museum, we strongly encourage them to spend a day viewing the exhibits and learning more about this great organization.”
