USO Gala 2011
with Special Guest Heroes and Special Celebrity Guest Pamela Anderson
It was a Star Spangled Salute to your Military as the USO in San Diego celebrated 70 years of the USO’s mission: “to enhance the quality of life of the U.S. Armed Forces personnel and their families worldwide and to create a cooperative relationship between U.S. military communities and involved or supporting civilian communities.”
Guests arrived at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in red, white and blue spirit for the 70th annual Stars and Stripes Ball for the April 9th, 2011 event.
(A prior VIP patron event at the La Jolla ocean front home of Diane and Roy Bell had helped rev up the spirit in preparation for this gala.)
VIP guests at this event first enjoyed a private champagne reception with celebrity actress / producer, USO and animal supporter Pamela Anderson.
Pamela was a 'trooper' greeting and posing with every guest. She was thrilled to be asked to go visit the troops this December in Afghanistan. She accepted. Pamela is that dedicated to helping the troops.
The event continued with a silent auction and a great emceeing job by Roger Hedgecock at dinner. Social Diary Magazine's Scott Johnston was noted by Roger Hedgecock as a distinguished Purple Heart recipient for the San Diego Police Department.
And there were a half dozen more heroes noted for their exceptional valor. SDM and the ballroom full of attendees applauds them and their families and friends who support them.
Among the many there were Chair Charlotte Jacobs and Co-Chair Fern Wayne Murphy, Virginia and Arthur Foster, Pat and Bob Whalen ( Bob Whalen was instrumental with the Pershing II missile), and Col. Robert Modrzejewski, USMC (Ret.), he is one of the very few who have earned the Medal of Honor, having been presented his Medal of Honor by President Lyndon B. Johnson in a White House ceremony on March 12, 1968.
More there included Karen and Dale Miller (Karen Chaired the event last year), Mary and Col. Bob Porter, Judith Jarcho and Marc Tarasuck, Rachel Grosvenor, USO Board of Directors President and CEO John Dooley, Tom Garcia, Margo Washburn and Captain Robair Mohrhardt, Jerfrey Moorad, and Susan and Matt Shillingburg.
The invocation was led by Commander Axtell Lee of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit Camp Pendleton, the Pledge of Allegiance was led by Col. Robert Modrzejewski, USMC (Ret.), the presentation of awards went to C. Neil Ash, CAPT Jack Ensch, USN (ret.), the San Diego Padres and the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.
Musical selections were provided by Mr. Dave Keefer, The liberty Bells and CDR Abe Thompson.
The evening ended appropriately enough with dancing to 'The Heroes.'
p.s. - The Social Diary's Margo Schwab and Scott Johnston were pleased to once again donate to this event.
