The proceeds from this event will benefit the Lance Cpl. Holly Charette Foundation. Holly was a sweet, kind and spirited soul. She joined the marines after 9/11 because she wanted to do something for her country. Holly was 21 years old, defending our country in Fallujah when her convoy was struck by a suicide bomber on June 23, 2005. Holly was the first female Marine to lose her life during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The foundation was started in 2006 to remember and honor Holly’s name and to help select students from the two high schools that she attended (Cranston High School East and Coventry High School) with books, supplies and anything else needed to get through their school year.
