This sit-down meal with all the trimmings and live music is only $50.00 per person. A cash bar will be available for your pleasure. The listening and dance music will be THE BIG DADDY MOJO BAND. Guaranteed to make you smile and want to dance if not just sit and enjoy. For this special evening, we encourage all to wear their military mess dress uniform or dress up in your best evening attire. Crazy Christmas Ties and Ugly Sweaters are welcome! It is a wonderful evening to jump start the Christmas season by being with military comrades, family, and friends, having a great meal with music at one of the best places in the Winston- Salem area.
Each person or couple attending is asked to bring a wrapped gift for a veteran or surviving spouse being cared for at the VA hospital, Salisbury. Please mark the outside tag as to whether the gift is for a man or a woman, and the size of the item (if gift is to be worn). These gifts bring such joy to our veterans and surviving spouses in their time of need. The Chapter thanks you for your support of this annual project.
Also please bring a new toy (in the package) to support the Marine Toys for Tots (TFT) campaign in Forsyth County. All toys and donations stay in Forsyth County! Last year TFT gave out over 58,000 toys to children in our community. ‘Tis the season so shop early!
