This year's special honorees for their support and advocacy for veterans include Congresswoman Maxine Waters, The Skylight Foundation and homeless and veteran philanthropic supporter Craig C. Darian, the Co-Chairman & CEO of Occidental Entertainment Group Holdings, Inc., with actors Joe Mantegna and Steven Weber returning as masters of ceremony.

"The Veterans Canteen is a great opportunity to unite Southern California for a single common purpose and create awareness about homeless veterans," said Colonel (Ret.) Yvette J. Kelley, NDVets CEO and President. "Many of our veterans are struggling with circumstances that both war and living on the streets has caused them, and can no longer fight for themselves. The gala will not only be an opportunity to raise much-needed funds to continue the work of New Directions for Veterans, but show gratitude toward both our veterans and those who are willing to fight for them."
