Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

6/29/2010 - JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. -- "Joint Traditions ... New Horizons" is the theme for the Joint Base Charleston Military Inaugural Ball scheduled to be held Oct. 23 at the North Charleston Convention Center. In this venue, Team Charleston takes an appreciative look back at the beginnings of joint efforts of the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Air Force and looks forward to new partnerships.

The planning committee has embraced this focus and looks forward to representing some of the joint missions accomplished by these two services through historic displays and vintage uniforms. All Joint Base Charleston members are invited to take part in this event.

The evening begins with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. and dinner is served at 7 p.m. The Strolling String military band will provide entertainment throughout the evening, offering the impressive ability to walk through the crowd with their instruments. After dinner entertainment will be a mixture of rhythm and blues, soul and rock as The Cool performs to guests' delight. Event attire is mess dress for officers, mess dress or semi-formal for enlisted and black tie for civilians.

Several fundraising events are planned to help with expenses. They include a golf tournament, bagging groceries, working at a NASCAR race, car washes and food tents. The ball committee is seeking volunteers to help with each event.

Additionally, the committee is also looking for a talented vocalist to sing the national anthem the night of the ball. Auditions will be held in early August.

For more information on the events, contact Lt. Col. Sabrina Preston-Leacock at 963-6726 or Senior Master Sgt. Gerard Komen at 963-7104.
