On September 23, USO Yokosuka & Hard Rock Cafe Japan joined together for tasty burgers, entertainment and door prizes in appreciation to the many troops that provided humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts after the devastating events of March 11, 2011.
USO Japan hosted over 2,000 active duty service members at Berth #9 alongside the USS BludeRidge and handed out almost 4,000 freshly grilled, signature Hard Rock Cafe Burgers. Sounds like more than a few people went back for seconds and thirds!
“Elvis” was there to rock out and provide the entertainment during the free lunch. Not only was the event a great success (as measured by smiles and full stomachs!), but Hard Rock Cafe donated everything, making the event the largest in-kind donation USO Japan has ever received!
