USO San Diego Stars and Stripes Gala to honor our military

USO San Diego’s 77th Annual Stars and Stripes Gala: For Love of Country honors and supports our active duty military personnel and helps provide them with much-needed services.

The signature gala has emerged as one of the top five gala events in San Diego and celebrates the strong, enduring relationship between San Diego and our Armed Forces.

Gala entertainment for the evening includes Two Time Tony Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell. A powerful baritone, Stokes has been one of the central leading men of the Broadway theatre since the early 1990s. He won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 2000 for his performance in Kiss Me, Kate.

For the second year, Joe Emerson, National Anthem Singer, Painter, and TV personality will lend his remarkable talents to the gala

USO San Diego is chartered by Congress, but takes no federal or state funding and relies on the generosity of the community to help make a difference in the lives of military personnel and their families.

The organization provides services to more than 220,000 active duty military members and their families 365 days a year at its award-winning Neil Ash USO San Diego Airport Center and downtown San Diego facility.

It connects these dedicated warriors to home, community and country; from transitioning, to deployed troops, to the wounded, injured and fallen. Its programs include family dinners, much-needed food distribution; and services for families in crisis.
