The United Service Organization is instrumental in its support for our Nation’s Armed Services. To raise funding for its efforts, the USO annually hosts a Casino Night. This year, I attended, along with Miss Maryland, and Miss Greater Richmond County. Several soldiers from Walter Reed were able to be in attendance as well as USO supporters that came in from at least as far away as Michigan!
We gambled the night away (with fake money, of course!) trying our hands at BlackJack, Roulette, Craps, and Texas Hold ‘Em. Rhett Butler, of World Championship Poker fame (5th in the World!), was there to give us tips on how to keep our “poker face.”
After this fun night of mixing, mingling, and money-making, the “Beauty Queens and Poker King” spent the following day at Walter Reed Hospital and the Mologne House visiting with patients and their families. To all that we met – thank you for being our HERO!
