USO Heroes of Wisconsin Gala

2019 “Heroes of Wisconsin” Gala

On Saturday, October 12th at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee, the USO gala will be a patriotic celebration honoring currently serving US military. There will be a two-hour open bar with live music, an exquisite dinner, and great auction items.

Guest Speaker:  Daryn Colledge joined the Army national guard after making over $20 million as a Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packer. He will tell stories from the 2010 Super Bowl team and then explain why he later chose to join the military. 

Emcee: Jessica Tighe, CBS 58 Morning News Anchor

Awards will be given to the Veteran Ready Workplace, Community Partner, USO Volunteer of the year and then culminate with awards for military from each branch of service and a family of the fallen. The awards go to military who not only displayed excellence in the military, but also our community. 

Sponsorship tables have 8 seats (USO can fill unused seats with military).
