Five-Star USO Gala 2014
USO Northwest’s annual Five-Star Gala and Auction, held Saturday, October 11 at The Westin Bellevue, raised more than $435,000, making the event one of the most successful fundraisers in the organization’s 48-year history. USONW was honored to have in attendance two Medal of Honor Recipients—Colonel Joe Jackson, U.S. Air Force (Ret) and Master Sergeant Leroy Petry, U.S. Army (Ret), as well as this year's Five-Star Gala Honorary Co-Chairs Dr. Robert M. Gates and Rear Admiral Herb Bridge, USNR (Ret). "Deepest thanks from the USO Northwest go to our kind and generous sponsors and donors. They have given us the means to continue our mission and services for the balance of this year and into 2015" said Joan Shalikashvili, 2014 Five-Star Gala Chair and USO Northwest Board Member.
