Sponsor Spotlight: The Willis Foundation

Sergeant Anthony MatteoniThe Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis Foundation provides college scholarships to children who have lost a parent, or whose parent was permanently disabled, in a combat zone. To date, the Willis Foundation has provided 14 college scholarships to children like Avery Matteoni. Avery’s father, Sergeant Anthony Matteoni, joined the U.S. Marines after witnessing a friend nearly die in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centers in 2001. In October of 2011, Sgt. Matteoni was killed in combat during his first tour in Afghanistan. He never had the chance to meet his daughter, Avery, who was born the following February.
The Willis Foundation strives to assist families like these and to honor our American Heroes by providing Great Rewards for Great Warriors and securing a future for their children. To learn more about our mission, please visit our website at www.willisfoundation.net.
