LOUISVILLE, KY – USA Cares is now in its 14th year of service to our nation’s military heroes, and is celebrating and paying tribute to our brave veterans, active service members and their families at this year’s annual USA Cares Gala. Featuring a sensational cocktail reception, fabulous multi-course catered dinner, live entertainment and live and silent auctions, this black tie-optional affair has established itself as USA Cares’ signature annual event.
“USA Cares is an organization that goes above and beyond for our veterans,” said John Weeks, Delta Dental of Kentucky Vice President and General Counsel. “As a former Navy man, I’m honored to have the opportunity to participate in this event. I’m even more thrilled that Delta Dental has put its support behind USA Cares’ mission.”
In true Kentucky fashion, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception featuring local bourbons, fine wines, and custom cocktails. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle and participate in a silent auction featuring fine art, entertainment experiences, rare collectibles and more!
Later in the evening, guests will enjoy a gourmet multi-course dinner in the glamorous main ballroom of the Marriott in downtown Louisville, followed by an inspirational presentation by guest speaker retired Captain James “Jae” Barclay, U.S. Army, a combat wounded veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Guests will then be invited to participate in a patriotic celebration of our brave heroes, leading the evening into an exhilarating live auction featuring a variety of exclusive content including luxury travel packages, a custom-built Suzuki motorcycle, and a full barrel of Buffalo Trace Eagle Rare bourbon with a personalized bottling experience.
