CDF’s recent Warriors Speak event was featured in the San Diego Business Journal. The event launched CDF's yearlong twentieth anniversary celebration in support of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness for and providing assistance to wounded service members and their families.
Guest speaker Navy Lt. Kevin Schaeffer recalled his survival story of the September 11 terrorist attacks when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon where he worked. Lt. Schaeffer shared his harrowing story of that day and his miraculous recovery, along with his commitment to WWP.
During the event, Dave Carothers, CDF's San Diego Managing Partner, presented Lt. Schaeffer with a $5,000 starting contribution to WWP on behalf of the firm. Carothers stated the firm will "bolster its fundraising throughout the year with organized group events away from the office and internal charitable efforts within our network of CDF offices statewide."
