C4's 35th Birthday
 February 26th was Charlie's (C4's) 35th Birthday.
C4's favorite birthday cake was angel food cake made with fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream. It is a known Keating family tradition! *Also, sneaking ice cream in the middle of the night is still a family tradition!

Thank You
Little Caesars
“Pizza Pizza!” The C4 Foundation is excited to announce our new collaboration with Little Caesar’s Pizza! We are so grateful to Bryan K. from Little Caesar’s for making this happen. Last year, Bryan spotted someone wearing our very own “Chuck Heavy” t-shirt and asked about the shirt's meaning, he then contacted us, and the rest is history. By the way, Little Caesar’s is the largest purchaser of Pepsi products in the restaurant industry for the US, so naturally it was a good fit considering C4’s love of Pepsi. We look forward to a long relationship with Little Caesar’s to help support the NSW community. Check out their history below!
Traeger Grills
The C4 Foundation has joined the wood-fired revolution! We would like to give a big thanks to Robert Sutherland from Traeger Grills for making the generous donation of Five Traeger Pro Series Wood Pellet Grills happen. Traeger Grills are perfect for the C4 Ranch because of the ease of use and simple controls that allows all of our visitors to focus on what matters most: Food, Family, Friends and Fun. Traeger’s pellets are made with REAL wood that produces REAL flavor – every time - REALLY!
Thank you to all those that continue to create fundraisers on social media (birthday fundraisers etc.). We sincerely appreciate your support. If you would like to create a fundraiser on Facebook use the link below.

C4 Ranch News
Families Continue to Enjoy The Ranch
We have enjoyed hosting SEAL families this past month as well as another weekend for  With Your Shield  (WYS) Program, a University of Southern California (USC) Marshall School of Business initiative.  WYS  is a certificate program developed through USC to help separating and retiring NSW families successfully transition into civilian life. For those accepted, the certificate program opens up the vast USC network, providing veterans, as well as their spouses, custom access to civilian business networks and educational opportunities. We were so excited to work with Director, Greg Sisa (ret. SEAL), who served with Charlie. Check out their website!

Building is Underway for 5 New Safari Glamping Tents!
We have been hard at work making improvements for guest housing at the C4 Ranch. We are currently building 5 new Bushtec Luxury African Safari Tents that can withstand hot and cold temperatures. We are so excited for SEAL Families to visit and experience all we have to offer! We would also like to thank all of the volunteers for their hard work and dedication during the rain, hail, and fog at last week's cement pour.
New Addition To The C4 Ranch Stable
This month we welcomed Levi, a sweet new pony who was donated by Tor and Sandy Anderson. He is a great addition to the family of horses we have at the C4 Ranch. This "laid back" guy can't wait to meet all of the SEAL families! The cost to feed each horse or pony per year is $2,800. Follow the link below to help with this expense!
