The Mighty 8th Air Force Museum’s annual Warbirds Ball which was originally postponed due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Hannah has been rescheduled to take place at the museum on Nov. 7.
The theme is “Are the Stars Out Tonight?” and will feature many stars — some you know and some you don’t. The enchanted evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception and silent auction, followed by dinner from Chef Matt Cohen and music from the incredible Jeremy Davis and the Equinox Jazz Orchestra. Mike Manhatton of WTOC-tV is this year’s emcee.
All proceeds from the gala helps to support the museum and its mission. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information on how to be part of the event of the year, contact Susan Eiseman at (912) 748-8888 ext. 124. Make it your night to shine.
