Event description

Description

Please join us for the 75th Seabee Birthday!

In March 2016 we had a Seabee Ball hosted in Minneapolis for the first time in several years. Due to the great response, we are bringing it back in 2017 to the Bloomington Hilton on 11-March for the 75th Birthday of the Seabees! With all the currently serving and prior Seabees in and around the Minneapolis area, we are sure this can be another outstanding event with great attendance. Come celebrate our heritage and connect with Seabees you may have served with before, or meet original 'Bees who blazed the trail for the rest of us! We would like to see as many WWII Seabees as we can, and we have raised money to cover the cost of their tickets, so please contact us before purchasing your ticket. You can either send a message through Eventbrite or email us at SeabeeBallMPLS@gmail.com.


FAQs

What is the uniform?

Preferred Dress / Uniform: Formal Black tie / Dinner Dress Blue Jacket / Gowns, if available. Service Dress Blue / suits / dresses, if you don't have the Dinner Dress. Ultimately, our first priority is that you attend and help celebrate Seabee heritage... dress is secondary.

How much is the hotel room?

There is a block of rooms at the Hilton (where the Ball is hosted) for $79 / night. You must use the code NAVYSB to get that price. Room must be booked by Wednesday, February 8, 2017 in order to be guaranteed that rate. This is a cheaper rate than the military/government rate. You can book your room using this link.

Who is allowed to attend?

All Seabees past and present and their families, anyone who has ever been assigned to a Seabee command and their families, and anyone who supports the Seabees - even if they were never in the military.

Who is sponsoring this event?

This is not a Command-sponsored function associated with any one command. It will be supported by Seabees from several commands (some of whom are participating on the committee) as well as retired Seabees.
