Exactly two weeks ago tonight on August 1st, our community rallied at the Admiral Jet Seafair Ball benefit for the USO.
We Danced, Drank, Dined, Donated and here is a quote from the USONW Executive Director Don Leingang on the results of our efforts which raised nearly $50,000 and counting!
“One of the primary keystones for the founding of the USO was to provide our military and their families with a safe place for comfort and relaxation,” says Donald Leingang, executive director of USO Northwest and CDR, USN Retired. “Our new USO SeaTac Center was designed to continue that mission. Proceeds from the recent Seafair Ball 2014 will enable USO Northwest to completely furnish our new, 7,500 sq. ft. SeaTac Center Lounge with all the comforts of home, including— reclining chairs, sofas and all of the custom-built bunk beds. USO Northwest is truly grateful to Mercer Events and Admiral Jet for their generosity in supporting our military and their families and I look forward to growing this annual event and our wonderful partnership.”
Our Seafair Ball Committee has purchased a Brick to commemorate how we all came together to honor our military. We invite you to join us and be a part of this history! For $250 you can buy a brick with your name on it and funds will go directly to completing this project.
Now – take a look at the memories and with gratitude, we say Because of You our Military will rest with a Peace of mind and a Piece of your hearts!
