Enjoy a black-tie evening honoring the men and women of the U.S. Navy.
6 p.m. - Reception
7 p.m. - Dinner program
The 242nd Navy Birthday Ball will be marked by special Navy traditions, including the annual cake-cutting ceremony.
Hear from guest speaker, former Navy fighter pilot Jake Ellzey. A career naval aviator, Ellzey flew the H-60 Seahawk helicopter, F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft. He has 830 aircraft carrier landings or "traps." His career was amazingly diverse and remarkably unique ... so much so that he could be described as the "Forrest Gump of the Navy," with assignments that placed him repeatedly at inflection points where history was being written.
The event is sponsored by the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber and the Oklahoma City Navy League.
Tables of eight are available for $1,500. Individual tickets are $80.
