These outstanding companies were recognized at last Friday’s 8th Annual Stars & Stripes Casino Night, an annual fundraiser that brings together USO-Metro supporters, members of the business community, wounded heroes from the area military hospitals, and local celebrities in a fun, Vegas-style atmosphere. The focus, as with every USO-Metro event, was on support for the service members and their families, and the broad spectrum of programs USO-Metro provides for the U.S. Armed Forces.
The Circle of Stars presentation was the centerpiece of this gala, highlighting the critical value of corporate supporters for USO-Metro’s important work.
“We are so honored and humbled that these top corporate sponsors are active and generous supporters of USO-Metro,” said Elaine Rogers, President, USO-Metro. “This past year, we touched the lives of over 500,000 service members and their families. We couldn’t provide the broad range of programs we deliver without the generous and incredible support of these companies and our other corporate donors.”
USO-Metro is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to “Serving those who serve, and their families” in Washington D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. It is through the generous financial support of individuals and organizations in the local community that USO-Metro is able to fulfill its mission. With the help of over 5,500 devoted volunteers, USO-Metro provides programs and services for active duty troops and their families at area military hospitals; through its Mobile USO program; at four USO Centers, four USO airport lounges and through Operation USO Care Package.
