USO Gala

The annual USO Gala is a star-studded event attended by approximately 900 VIP guests who gather to pay tribute to our U.S. men and women in uniform and raise funds for an organization that is an indelible part of our national pride. A-list entertainment has included Trisha Yearwood and Trace Adkins in recent years.
The Hargrove team is proud to have supported this prestigious event for over 10 years by providing a range of décor for receptions, entrance treatments, impressive stage sets, and grand ceiling treatments. Hargrove has partnered with the USO planning team to ensure installation runs smoothly at a variety of venues in Washington DC, including the Washington Hilton, National Building Museum, and Marriott Wardman Park.

Our team is annually tasked with creating a décor concept that spans the entire room being used, including elements that emphasize the soldiers and families the USO impacts. For instance, guests can email the troops from the gala, and the 2010 staging included imagery of soldiers.

In addition to the annual gala, Hargrove has partnered with the USO on a range of other events, such as concerts, fashion shows, and ground breakings.
