Event description

Description

Please join us for the 76th 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 for the last two years, we are moving the location in 2018 to the Radisson Blu – Mall of America! With all the currently serving and prior Seabees in the Midwest 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 once again, we have raised money to cover the cost of their tickets. This year, we will also cover the cost for Korea era Seabees. 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 Radisson Blu (where the Ball is hosted) for $129 / night. Room must be booked by Wednesday, February 10, 2018 in order to be guaranteed that rate. Each room booked will receive a Mall of America shopping bag and coupon book with $1,000 in savings. That room rate is good for multiple consecutive nights, if you want to come and make it a weekend getaway. You can book your room using this link. You must use the code SEABEE to get that price. Or you can call 800-333-3333 and ask for the Minneapolis Seabee Ball room rate.

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.
