In response to concerns about COVID-19, USA Cares will live-stream its 2020 Virtual Gala on YouTube and Facebook on Thursday, October 15, 2020, at 7:00 PM EST. This special online event will celebrate USA Cares’ 17 years of service to our heroes, honor veterans and military families, and raise funds to support those struggling from the adverse effects of service.
Despite this change in format, USA Cares’ annual tradition of paying tribute to veterans, service members, and their families while raising funds to support to them in their hour of need remains the same, with a few extra perks for attendees along the way. Tickets to this year’s Gala are free, and participants can attend this special online event regardless of location. Guests will have an opportunity to bid on various items and luxury experiences in live and silent auctions, enter raffles to win several prized bourbons, and more. Additionally, the program will feature a live “bidding for good” virtual paddle raise, where guests are encouraged to make a life-changing donation to support military families, all from their computers or mobile devices.
