WASHINGTON, D.C. – D.C. United and Guidehouse have announced their initiatives ahead of this year’s Military Appreciation Night at Audi Field on July 13 against Nashville SC. D.C. United and Guidehouse, the Black-and-Red’s front-of-kit sponsor, will host the United Service Organizations (USO) to honor military families at this year’s Military Appreciation Night.

D.C. United and Guidehouse, through their relationships with USO, have invited service and family members, as well as supporters to show their gratitude and provide a special night to remember their service at Audi Field. The families will be welcomed at Audi Field by a private reception hosted by D.C. United and Guidehouse. At halftime of the D.C. United match, Guidehouse will present the USO with a donation to support and help uplift the mission of the USO to provide key services to current and former service members.

“As part of our dynamic partnership with D.C. United, we are honored to elevate our longstanding commitment to our military and their families as this Audi Field event. This Guidehouse donation is a small act which represents our shared passion and commitment to the mission of the USO,” said Scott McIntyre, Chief Executive Officer of Guidehouse. “Supporting the USO allows us to give back to the people who protect our freedoms each and every day, as well as their families who are the force behind the force.”

Following the pre-game reception, the invited military families will experience the action at Audi Field from the stadium’s premium Events DC Club seating. The first 3,000 fans in attendance at July 13’s match will receive a special-edition D.C. United game towel on behalf of Guidehouse and the USO. Fans will have the chance to learn more about the USO and their mission by stopping by their table near Gate A while at Audi Field.
