Columbia, MD: MISSION BBQ co-founders, Bill Kraus and Steve Newton presented a donation of $1,075,952 to the United Service Organizations (USO) today on FOX & Friends.  This donation was made possible by the generous support of customers who purchased an American Heroes Cup in 2019. The check was presented to Lisa Marie Riggins, Vice President of Operations for USO Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore. Available at 70 restaurant locations, $2 from the purchase of an American Heroes Cup was donated to the USO.

The partnership between the USO and MISSION BBQ began in March 2016. The donation will contribute to a total of more than $3.6 million for the non-profit organization. “It’s our honor and privilege to serve and support such a renowned and giving organization like the USO. Whose volunteers, programs, and entertainers have supported American Heroes around the world for the last 79 years,” said Steve Newton, Co-Founder of MISSION BBQ.
