USO Fundraiser at Merrill Gardens
UPDATE: Local merchants and businesses have been extremely generous about donating items for our silent auction. To date they have received more than 40 auction prizes, including a pair of Club Level seats for the Seahawks/Jets game on November 11th. Make sure to support this worthy cause.
Merrill Gardens at Kirkland will honor the week of Veterans Day by hosting a benefit dinner for the USO. Since 1941, the USO has been providing support to U.S. service members and their families around the world and here at home.
The dinner is open to the general public for a minimum $10 donation.
All money collected will be donated to the USO.
For the past 70 years, the USO (United Service Organizations) has been the bridge between the American public and the U.S. military. In times of peace and war, the USO delivers its special brand of comfort, morale and recreational services to the military. The USO is a congressionally chartered, private, nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations to support USO activities.
During the week of Veterans Day, residents and team members at every Merrill Gardens retirement community across the county will host a fundraiser dinner open to family, friends and the general public. All food and beverages will be donated by Merrill Gardens. Local merchants and businesses are invited to donate prizes for a silent auction. In Kirkland, the event will also feature a no-host bar, live music and entertainment in the tradition of the USO Variety Show.
When: Thursday, November 8th, 4:00 – 7:00 PM
Where: Merrill Gardens at Kirkland, 201 Kirkland Avenue, Kirkland, WA 98033
