HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - The 2nd annual Cookout for the Troops will be held on Saturday, July 21 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at 49 participating Hampton Roads new car dealerships.

All other participants can receive a hot dog or hamburger with a donation to the USO. People are asked to drive in and donate their change, as well. The USO will be at each participating dealership to collect donations.

Additionally, the USO of Hampton Roads will receive $25 for every test drive during the cookout, donated by the HRADA dealerships.
