Event proceeds benefit the Bob Hope USO, which in
2016 is celebrating its 75th year of supporting
America’s troops. The event will make a huge difference for the more
than 200,000 troops served each year throughout the community, at bases,
and at Bob Hope USO centers at Los Angeles, Ontario, Palm Springs and
John Wayne Airports. The USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops by
providing a home away from home and keeping them connected to the
families they left behind. The USO also supports Families of the Fallen
and helps our service members transition from military service back to
civilian life. All Bob Hope USO programs and services, including food
and beverages, are provided free to military service members and their
Bob Hope USO is the fastest-growing USO in the nation, serving
the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside
and Kern. A non-profit organization, Bob Hope USO relies on private,
tax-deductible contributions from individuals, organizations,
foundations and corporations to support its programs and services.
