Renowned television and radio show host/producer Ryan Seacrest is to serve as Master of Ceremonies and three-time, GRAMMY-award winning/multi-platinum recording artists Zac Brown Band are to perform as featured entertainment at the 2016 USO Gala at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., Oct. 20.
Seacrest and Zac Brown Band, among many more stars yet to be announced, will convene in the nation’s capital to celebrate the USO’s 75th anniversary and continue a time-honored tradition of recognizing the heroism of America’s enlisted service members.
One thousand people are expected to be on hand as the USO presents its 2016 USO Service Member of the Year Award to a service member from each branch of America’s Armed Forces as well as its 2016 USO Volunteer of the Year Award to two USO volunteers – one working out of a USO center located stateside and the other, overseas. Guests will also watch as the USO presents its 2016 Spirit of the USO Award to The Coca-Cola Company in recognition of its 75-year partnership with the USO.
Attendees will enjoy a menu thoughtfully designed by celebrity chef and USO tour veteran Robert Irvine, who will also be onsite. Guests will range from Washington dignitaries, celebrities and members of Congress to USO corporate sponsors and members of the USO Board of Governors.
