USO San Diego Stars and Stripes gala


USO San Diego Stars and Stripes gala took place May 20 at the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina. The gala, themed “Land of the Free… Because of the Brave,” celebrated the “strong, enduring relationship between San Diego and the Armed Forces.”

This year the event honored Malin Burnham, also known as “Mr. San Diego,” responsible for bringing America’s Cup to San Diego, as well as his extensive charitable activities in San Diego. To date this year’s event has raised $738,000 in donations for the local military. Visit
