LAS VEGAS, Nev. & DULUTH, Ga. - The winner of the nuCamp mini teardrop trailer auctioned by SCM Group during the AWFS Fair is Jose Corona, owner of Corona Millworks in Chino, California.

Corona's high bid of $27,000 will be donated directly to the Semper Fi & America's Fund, an organization dedicated to providing resources and support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Sandy Hendren, Community Outreach and Event manager of The Fund, presented Corona with the key to the camper, as Giuseppe Riva, CEO, SCM North America, joined in thanks and appreciation. Jose and Kristy Corona's son Corporal Nathan Corona serves in the Marine Corps Reserves, and the Corona's said they plan to continue philanthropic efforts supporting America’s armed forces and Semper Fi & America’s Fund.

SCM had the patriotic, Made-in-America camper on display at its booth during the four-day woodworking show, held July 20-23 in Las Vegas. Visitors to the booth could place bids or donations. Each donation was matched by SCM, along with a gifted commemorative wooden American flag made on-site with SCM's Made-in-America Freedom CNC machines.

“As we do each year, SCM is honored once again to partner with Semper Fi & America’s Fund. Giving back is part of our core values and we believe it is our responsibility to help support the brave men and women who protect us and our loved ones,” Riva said. “Through the generosity of Corona Millworks and donations from our attendees, we were able to gift Semper Fi & America’s Fund additional funds and support into their community. We believe initiatives such as these unite the woodworking community through impactful ways to give back to those who have given so much for us to live in the greatest and most resilient country on Earth.”

Founded in 1995, Corona Millworks is a supplier of cabinet doors, drawer boxes, cabinet components, and hardware to the cabinet industry.
