Thank You to All Who Made the USO Lei'd Back Luau a Success

Thanks to the efforts of generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers, the 2017 USO Lei’d Back Luau was a success! Together we raised funds to support the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces over the Armed Forces Day weekend.

USO Fort Drum wants to especially thank Carthage Area Hospital for being the Presenting Sponsor of our dinner, dance, auction fundraiser again this year!!! Carthage Area Hospital supports the USO Fort Drum by giving of their time, talent, and treasure. Employees volunteer in the Center and at special events. Sponsorship of our bottled water program, the Luau, Hump Day Hot Dogs, and Trunk-or-Treat bring help bring so much goodness to our military and their families.

USO Fort Drum also needs to thank AmeriCU Credit Union, and Martin’s Point Health Care who have been at every major USO Fort Drum event since we opened our doors in 2007. Through sponsorship of our midday snack programs and major events like Operation That’s My Dress, Trunk-or- Treat, and this Luau, AmeriCu & Martin’s Point help connect families to the things they love; family, home, and country.

Thank you to the Hilton Garden Inn, the Vine Hula School, photographer Lain Harvey, ZAPET DJ Service, our auction sponsors, those who purchased tickets to the Lei’d Back Luau, and to the incredibly patriotic Weissman family. USO Fort Drum truly appreciates your support!

We hope everyone will join us again Armed Forces Day 2018 (May 19th) at the Hilton Garden Inn for the next dinner, dance, auction fundraiser supporting local USO programs and services. Watch the USO Fort Drum Facebook page for the announcement regarding the new theme for next year’s event.
