Peter W. Busch Family Foundation donates to SEAL Museum
PORT ST. LUCIE — Philip Busch and several members of his team recently visited the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce and presented a check for $10,000 from the Peter W. Busch Family Foundation. The money represents partial proceeds from their annual Wild Game Dinner.
The Wild Game Dinner, held each October, is an “all you can eat, all you can drink” fundraiser for men only. The menu included a wide assortment of local and potentially exotic food groups such as wild pork, catfish, turkey, gator, venison, jambalaya, quail, swamp cabbage, frog legs and sweet corn. A top shelf open liquor bar and free flowing ice cold beer, both bottled and on tap was also part of the annual festivities.
All the money raised at the Wild Game Dinner event goes to local charities.
“The Navy SEAL Museum is grateful for the generous donation from the Peter W. Busch Family Foundation. It will directly benefit the museum’s Trident House Charities program,” said Elaine Ryan, marketing director for the museum.
The foundation has been supporting the Navy SEAL Museum for several years.
“We are extremely proud and honored to support the Navy SEALS,” said Philip Busch, president of the foundation and Southern Eagle Distributing. “It’s an incredible museum with a tremendous amount of historical information. Everyone should make it a point to visit it.”
In addition to the Navy SEAL Museum, Southern Eagle is proud to support local charities and nonprofits including the Treasure Coast Food Bank, Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, YMCA of the Treasure Coast, CASTLE, Busch Wildlife Center, St. Lucie County 100 Club and others.
