Event description

Description

This charity-fundraising event is hosted in recognition of Armed Forces Day. With a throwback to World War II, the 1940s USO Night is a night of fun, nostalgia and fundraising with proceeds supporting area Veterans in need!

Come early and socialize with a cash bar prior to a fabulous meal prepared by Chef Gregorie, battle other bidders in the Live and Silent fundraising auction and cap the night off with swing dancing to Big Al's Big Band! Attendees are encouraged to dress in period attire (not required) - service members are invited to wear their uniforms (if they fit)!

All proceeds assist area veterans in need - to date, this event has generated over $22,000 in support for area veterans!
