HOLYOKE, Mass (WWLP) – The Pioneer Valley USO hosted it’s fourth annual Military ball and gala at the Delaney House in Holyoke, honoring veterans and active members. Hundreds of people came out to support their troops.
This year the fundraiser’s theme was “Always by their Side.” It featured music and dancing, but more importantly, it paid tribute to our veterans and active military across the country and right here in western Massachusetts.
Bruce Marshall of the Pioneer Valley USO told 22News “Today we’re honoring, our guest speaker Keni Thomas. He was part of the black hawk down and he’ll be entertaining tonight as well as speaking tonight.”
22News’s own Barry Kriger was also there and hosted the event. The ball is the largest fundraiser of the year for The Pioneer Valley USO.
All proceeds will help serve the needs of active military and their families.
