Military Appreciation Day
We Salute You!
On Saturday during the Hoag Classic, we celebrate our service men and women during our annual Military Appreciation Day, presented by CoreLogic.
On this day, all active duty, military reserve, national guard, military retirees and veterans – and up to three of their guests – will be honored with complimentary admission and food and beverage to thank them for their service to our country.
Continuing our tradition of charitable contributions to military organizations, in 2020 we will donated close to $75,000 to military causes including the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, the Navy Memorial Foundation and the Blue Angels Foundation.
Registration for Military Appreciation Day to receive complimentary admission and concession vouchers will open up this summer.
Through Military Appreciation Day, the Hoag Classic is dedicated to helping local military charities. Click the links below to learn more about some of the local charities we have partnered with in years past.
