Thank you for joining us for an evening of celebration as we honored TriWest Healthcare Alliance and the Defense Health Agency for their contributions to military and Veteran families. It was truly an evening to remember as our celebrity chefs, military chefs, local bakers, and mixologists led us through a memorable culinary adventure.

Official White House Ornament 2023
For decades, The White House Historical Association has offered annual commemorative White House Christmas Ornaments. Proceeds from the ornaments go toward preserving the history of the White House and educational programs. AND — this year, Blue Star Families will also receive proceeds from each sold ornament through our special link using the password:! It’s a win-win!
Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting out, this beautiful ornament featuring President Gerald R. Ford will look perfect on your tree! They make a great gift, too! Each ornament comes individually boxed and shipping is free for up to five ornaments.
