Matthew G. Gregory, his wife, Danella J. Gregory, and their adult children, Matthew J. Gregory and Gina D. Gregory, operate Central Coast Equine Rescue and Retirement (CCERR) and Wounded Warriors Support Group (WWSG), Becerra said.
“CCERR and WWSG run raffles purportedly to support veterans and horses, but instead spend the donated proceeds for personal use,” the AG’s Office wrote in a press release.
Personal uses included spending $10,000 at a hunting store, buying cars, shopping at Victoria’s Secret and Nordstrom, paying off personal credit card debts, traveling, and restaurant bills, according to the lawsuit.
