It’s time to get your order in for tickets to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball as we are just about halfway through the batch of available tickets. The Ball is on November 10 at the Sun River Community Center. The evening begins at 5:30 with a Social Hour and will end just before 10 following dancing and music by the group “Soul What.” You have the opportunity this year to choose between surf or turf for dinner, and you won’t want to miss our guest speaker who is one our Detachment’s own. Tickets are $35 per ticket. Our blog coordinator, Donna Toole, can direct you to the ticket sales.
On October 6th at 6:30 P.M. there will be a dedication in the southwest corner of SUU's football stadium right next to the chair. President Wyatt and Ron Lewis will be speaking at the event. We would really like the support from our local veterans to be there. It will be a 30 minute ceremony. The next day at the homecoming football game, President Wyatt will unveil the chair right before the national anthem is played.
We are trying to raise $1500 before September 30th to fund the chair. We are selling clothing apparel found HERE. This can also be found in the contact section on our Facebook page named; SUU Chair of Honor.
If anyone would like to make a cash donation they have to give it directly to myself. We were unaware until it was too late that to start a separate account we would have had to get a non-profit license from the state. For donations they can contact me personally at (435) 676-3600. All proceeds will go directly to the funding of the chair.
We appreciate any support we can get. I have attached a picture with our flier that we will be hanging around town. On there you will see a picture of one at Gillette Stadium that we are modeling our design after. If anyone has any questions they can contact me at the phone number above or my email firstname.lastname@example.org.
