What is a wine pull fundraiser?

A wine pull is a blind draw where every buyer wins a bottle of wine. Typically the wine pull will sell out quickly.  So make sure to get entered early.

Bottles are donated by individual parents of the five North Texas Service Academy Parent’s Clubs, then wrapped and numbered, so the label cannot be seen.  We will offer 60-75 bottles of wine.

Players pay $20 and draw a numbered cork from the bin.  The player wins the bottle with the corresponding number on the Wine Bottle Tag. Some bottles will be worth more than others. Many folks play several times.

 

How can you help?

Bring a bottle of wine to donate at your next club parent or ball planning meeting.  Please give it with your donation information, and value ( no less than $15) to your academy representative. We hope to get a few expensive bottles donated.  It makes the pull much more exciting when players know they have a chance at a $50  bottle for example.  It is important to donate early, so the bottles can be prepared for display at the event. DONATE EARLY AND OFTEN! Last year this fundraiser was very successful, and we want to raise the bar! This helps raise funds for the Cadets and Mids!

DJ P-LOVE Returning this year!

We are pleased to announce that

DJ P-LOVE will join us again this year!

DJ P- Love aka Patrick Alston has been a DJ for 20 years. He went into the business because of his love of music and his passion for creating memorable events. He is from Raleigh, North Carolina and now lives in Dallas, Texas.

Patrick is a Navy veteran who served on the USS Theodore Roosevelt as an Aircraft Director.

So, when we asked Patrick to DJ for our 2016 Lone Star Military Ball he said yes and felt right at home among our military families and guests.

 

And we are so happy that he will rock the house again this year for our 24th Annual Academies Lone Star Military Ball.

    Patrick describes himself as an exciting, outgoing people person and he certainly proved that to us with his outstanding mix of music and entertainment. He specializes in custom mix and blends for continuous dancing and fun. He got our Ball started with a bang and kept it blasting with his state of the art equipment–concert speakers, a fog machine, light show, wireless mics, and a laptop music library that has over 10,000 songs covering music in all genres.

We can’t wait to see what surprises he has in store for us this year!

Sponsors–We appreciate you!

We appreciate and do not take for granted the sponsors who have so generously donated in the past and those who continue to donate to the Lone Star Military Ball.  100% of the generated support directly benefits the Cadets and Midshipmen as they graduate from one of the five Service Academies.

Without the generous help of local companies, we would not be able to hold this highly anticipated annual event.

By donating, companies are supporting the future military leaders of our country and helping to underwrite this memorable event.

Time and time again these outstanding leaders go on to become CEO’s, heads of state, strategic commanders, aviators, astronauts, politicians and government officials, physicians, scholars, and captains of industry.

Our demographic is an elite group of leaders, and everyone who associates with them.  Graduates of West Point, the Naval Academy, and the Air Force Academy have entered and lead the business world after completing their military service. These graduates continue to shape our world, and have led many of the top corporations as CEO’s in America including Proctor & Gamble, 7-Eleven Corporation, America-online, Wendy’s Restaurants, Foot Locker, Nexus Lexus, Marriott International, Mercedes- Benz USA, and even Presidents of the United States.

Many companies now specifically recruit Service Academy graduates to lead and manage their companies because of their success in the private sector.

Please consider partnering with us this year!

Welcome to our NEW web home.

We have changed the formal name of the Annual Ball to the LONE STAR MILITARY BALL.
We are still the same group that has been doing this ball for the past 24 years.
But we decided to make some upgrades to our name and to our website!

A BIG WELCOME from this years Committee !!!! and we hope to see you at this years ball!
