The Ball Committee met recently. The menu this year will be similar to last year's but the Prime Rib is being replaced with a Roasted Sirloin served with a port wine sauce. We all agreed it was very good. And it allows us to keep our tickets at $35.00 each.
We are all excited about having a live band this year. We have hired Those Guys Jazz out of Orlando. We went to St. Augustine to hear them play and it was unanimous that they will bring a lively atmosphere to this year's event.
Our ad forms have just been published. Fliers will be out shortly and tickets should be available in May. Online ticket sales will begin May 1st.
This year we will be conducting a raffle instead of a true silent auction and we will not have a live auction. We will also have the classic 50/50 where someone will walk away with half of that money!
A slight change in our configuration will allow us to bring in nearly 250 guests. But we expect the ball to sell out early again. We have plenty of people returning, as well as commitments from Marines and guests in Lake City, Chiefland and Ocala.
When tickets go on sale, please don't put it off. We want you to be there.
