USASOA Monthly BBQ FOR OUR HEROES - Chili-Fest Contest

  • Walter Reed National Military Medical Center 8901 Wisconsin Avenue Bethesda, MD, 20889 United States (map)

For the past 4 years, USASOA has been holding monthly BBQ's at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for our ill, injured and wounded heroes. We begin the season in May and end with our famous Chili Fest Contest in October and we invite several of the wounded to judge the contest. Over the years of holding this morale-boosting event, we have served hundred of hamburgers, hot dogs, as well as other traditional outdoor BBQ foods and drinks.We also set up a table with toiletries, healthy snacks, games and more for our wounded to take back to their rooms. Much of the items we distribute come from incredibly generous contributors who wish to show our wounded that they are not forgotten. And, other items are collected during our monthly BOOTS ON THE GROUND collection drive. 

We are also searching for volunteers, partners and supporters to help ensure that this terrific program continues at Walter Reed and we hope to expand BBQ FOR OUR HEROES to other military medical facilities around the country. Join us by donating or volunteering now
