Tennessee Military Ball to honor local cadets, midshipmen Dec. 27 at Loews Vanderbilt Plaza
Legendary musician Charlie Daniels is serving as the honorary chair for the 2012 Tennessee Military Ball on Thursday, Dec. 27 at 6 p.m. at Loews Vanderbilt Plaza in Nashville.
The Tennessee Military Ball is an annual event hosted by Nashville’s All Academy & ROTC Parents Club that recognizes and honors cadets and midshipmen who are attending the United States Military Academy, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, or any other military college, and those students from Tennessee that are enrolled in an ROTC program.
“This is a great night of fun, fellowship and food. We honor our young men and women who are attending the academies and ROTC programs throughout the United States and raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project,” said Ginger Reasonover, president of the All Academy and ROTC Parents’ Club and mother of two members of the U.S. Army.
Tickets for cadets, midshipmen and guest are $20 each. Tickets for family members and other guests are $75. They may be purchased by calling 615-397-6837 or visiting www.tennesseemilitaryball.org. Rooms at Loews Vanderbilt Plaza are available at a group rate for guests by calling 800-336-3335.
Daniels is an ardent supporter of the military and has devoted much time to visiting bases overseas and participating in other programs and events to benefit them.
In addition to the presentation of cadets and midshipmen, the evening will include dinner and dancing, a display of military artifacts and a silent auction that benefits The Wounded Warrior Project. The keynote speaker for the evening will be Lieutenant General John M. Pickler, United States Army (Retired).
The All Academy & ROTC Parents Club was organized in 2003 by a group of parents and friends of college students who attend our nation's service academies, or who will be commissioned as officers when they graduate from colleges where they participate in ROTC programs.
It is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 Tennessee-based organization whose volunteer membership comprises parents and friends of these students, as well as previous graduates from these institutions. The All Academy & ROTC Parents Club assists the service academies in their efforts to identify and recruit high school students interested in pursuing a military education, and educate the community about these opportunities.
The organization holds events during the year that raise money support for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). These events include the WWP's Soldier Ride, the WWP’s 8K Fun Run and the All Academy & ROTC Ball where we recognize and honor those young Tennesseans who are pursuing collegiate military leadership training.
