U.S.VETS – Las Vegas to Host their 1st Ever "Honoring Those Who Served Virtual Gala" on November 18, 2020

For the first time ever, the Honoring Those Who Served Benefit Gala will be virtual and streamed online on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at 5:30 pm.  The online event will benefit the programs and services that U.S.VETS provides for homeless and at-risk veterans in the Las Vegas area and will raise critical COVID-19 relief funds.

During these challenging times, U.S.VETS — Las Vegas has remained open and committed to its mission, the successful transition of military veterans. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has strained the organization’s limited resources and has affected our Las Vegas veterans’ financial health, mental well-being, and ability to lead self-sufficient lives.

The Honoring Those Who Served virtual gala is an opportunity to come together to support veterans who bravely served our country. This online event will benefit the programs and services that U.S.VETS provides for homeless and at-risk veterans in the Las Vegas area.

“We need the community more than ever to support veterans.  This virtual event is an opportunity to show veterans we recognize their service, and we support them in these uncertain times,” Shalimar Cabrera,U.S.VETS – Las Vegas Executive Director
