2018 Holly Ball

This year’s New England All Service Academy Holly Ball will be held on Sunday December 30, 2018 from 6pm-midnight at the Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA.  The Holly Ball is an evening for friends and family to gather and honor our cadets/midshipmen who attend the US Military Academy, US Naval Academy, US Coast Guard Academy, US Merchant Marine Academy, and US Air Force Academy. We liken it to a prom where parents and family can attend!  It is a chance to celebrate our cadets/midshipmen who have chosen to pursue a military education and serve their country rather than attend a civilian institution.  The cadets/midshipmen do not need to bring a date, and other family members are welcome to attend.  It is a very fun night of dining, dancing, and meeting other service academy families who share similar experiences.  Also, as tradition dictates, there will be a photo op as all the Firsties/Seniors get to cut their service academy cake with a saber!

Our speaker this year is Mr. Fletcher “Flash” Wiley (Navy Prep ’61, USAFA ’65) who had a distinguished career at USAFA, in the Air Force, and in the Massachusetts legal and business communities. This is always a fun night and if you have thought about coming in the past and haven’t, this is the year to attend!  The ticket sales will begin mid-October ($55 cadets/midshipmen, $65 guests) and include dinner and dancing, a photo booth, and chances for the cadets/midshipmen to win door prizes.  As always, you will have the option to purchase professional photographs too.  It will be a wonderful night celebrating together.

The Seaport Hotel is offering special discounted rooms to attendees for $139 the night of the Holly Ball and $209 if you would like to extend your stay into New Year’s Eve. Please call 1-877-SEAPORT(7327678) to reserve your room now and mention the Holly Ball.
