The Anniversary Ball evening begins at 6 pm with cocktail hour and multiple cash bars on the 2nd floor of the Omni Hotel, Oklahoma City. A cash bar will be available both inside the Anniversary Ball and dinner banquet ballroom and in the hallway just outside. An ATM is located on the 1st floor of the hotel for your convenience.

During cocktail hour, registered guests will enjoy patriotic music provided by our local favorite, Frontier Brass Band, winner of the 2022 U.S. Master's Brass Band Entertainment Championship. The band is guided by the artistic direction of Dr. Ryan Sharp, Oklahoma native and Professor of trumpet at the University of Central Oklahoma who also serves as the band's principal cornetist, and performs under the baton of Dr. Douglas Henderson, past Associate Director of Wind Conducting and Associate Director of Bands at Oklahoma State University.

Seating for dinner is prearranged for guests who have registered and purchased tickets through Eventbrite. The ticket price includes dinner, 100th Anniversary memento, commemorative program and exciting ceremonial Marine Corps League pageantry and dancing after dinner.
