About the Event

USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore’s Stars & Stripes Benefit for the Troops is an annual B2B networking event and fundraiser that brings together over 500 industry professionals and community leaders to support USO-Metro through a fun-filled night with corporate, government, and contracting professionals. This event helps raise more than $300,000 annually to support the vital programs and services USO-Metro provides to active-duty military and their families. This year’s theme is Roaring Twenties, where attendees will enjoy real Live! Casino games, Prohibition-inspired cocktails, foodie-approved fare and exciting raffle and silent auction prizes. A marquee fundraising event of the year, you won’t want to miss this night out with colleagues, partners and a network of fantastic professionals supporting our nation’s armed forces.


About the Cause

Proceeds from this event directly support USO-Metro’s mission: The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those who serve, and their families in Washington D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. With the help of thousands of devoted volunteers, USO-Metro provides programs and services for active duty troops and their families at area military hospitals, five USO Centers, four USO airport lounges and a Mobile USO.

We encourage attendees to come dressed in their best 1920s attire, but otherwise dress is cocktail attire.
