In 2024 we will honor Coast Guard crews at tribute dinners in New Orleans, Ft. Lauderdale, Washington, DC, Anchorage, Honolulu, New York City, and Houston. We will also continue our popular golf tournaments in New York City and Washington, DC, which raise funds for our scholarship programs.

“Coast Guard members perform vital missions for our nation everyday – from saving lives, to facilitating maritime commerce and protecting precious ocean resources,” said Susan Ludwig, president, Coast Guard Foundation. “Our events honor them, bring Coast Guard and industry leaders together to celebrate our maritime strength, and raise funds for vital programs that support service members and their families. We are grateful to all who made our 2023 events a success and look forward to another impactful year in 2024.”
