MCSC Superhero party raises funds for military community

FORT IRWIN, Calif. — Dozens of children and families welcomed the opportunity to dress up, have a good time and support a good cause, all at the same time. The Military and Civilian Spouses’ Club (MCSC) hosted its Spring Fundraiser on March 6 at the Sandy Basin Community Center. Parents and kids were asked to dress as their favorite super hero and come enjoy dancing, games, a bounce house, food and fellowship. There was also a special superhero guest appearance from Wonder Woman, who quickly caught the attention of all her young fans. Guests also had the chance to participate in a silent auction and win big-ticket prizes. The funds help support future MCSC events and go right back into our community to support military families.
