About USO of Indiana Five Star Gala

The Five Star Gala is not only the USO of Indiana’s premier event recognizing our great military, it is also our largest fundraiser. In addition to recognition of outstanding military service members, each year the USO of Indiana presents the Five Star Medal to a special honoree. Previous Five Star Medal recipients include: 2017 Major General R. Martin Umbarger and Mrs. Rowana Umbarger, 2016 Senator Richard G. Lugar, 2015 Dr. E. Carver McGriff. Proceeds from the event go toward five hospitality centers located throughout the state and fund many programs that strengthen our military members and keep them connected to the people and places that they love. Over 100,000 service members and their families use our centers or participate in our programs every year. The Fifth Annual Five Star Gala and Silent Auction will take place on Saturday, August 25, 2018. Doors will open to all attendees at 5:30pm in the evening. Dinner will commence at 7:00pm. Program will conclude at approximately 10:00pm.
