At the USO, we’re lucky to have corporate partners who are as dedicated to making moments happen for troops and families as we are. On Sept. 8, that turned into a special night at Citizens Bank Park for one Army National Guard family.
In conjunction with Tastykake’s centennial celebration, the company is partnering with the USO to deliver 100 Birthday Moments to troops and their families as part of the USO’s Every Moment Counts campaign. For the Sept. 8 moment, birthday boy Liam Evans (who turned 7 on Sept. 7) got to throw out the first pitch before the Phillies-Pirates game while his parents, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Reece Evans and Chief Warrant Officer 3 Emily Evans – both Army National Guard members – and his brother Reece looked on.
The USO extends our thanks Tastykake for making this moment for troops and our congratulations the whole Evans family on their big night at the park.
