Those attending can also try their luck at the Monte Carlo Night activities to win some fabulous prizes. The dinner is followed by the Opening Ceremony and Military/Veteran Tribute. The evening will be capped off by the Pointer Sisters in concert.

The proceeds from the benefit will be distributed to the Navy Seal Family Foundation, the GI Film Festival, the West L.A. Veterans Home Support Foundation, and the Jewish War Veterans.
Military Connection’s involvement in the concert came about when CEO Debbie Gregory was approached by organizer Allan Hoffman. Mr. Hoffman, a U.S. Navy veteran, is a member of the Jewish War Veterans, and also serves on the advisory board of the GI Film Festival. “Allan is a dedicated veteran whose efforts and energy inspire everyone around him,” said Ms. Gregory. She continued, “It is my honor to put the resources of MilitaryConnection.com to such good use.”
