The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation held its third annual gala at the Riverside Yacht Club. The evening raised $1.6 million. Four hundred and fifty patriots attended the event as CFPF presented its Patriot Award to the Chief of Staff of the Army, General Ray Odierno. A touching video of singer Curtis “50 cent” Jackson played at the event. Mr. Jackson and Chris Clarke, who is Jackson’s business partner, were lead sponsors of the evening.
To date, CFPF has donated over $2.9 million in scholarships to military children who lost a parent in the line of duty. Greenwich residents David and Cynthia Kim are the founders of Children of Fallen Patriots.
