Marine Corps Birthday Ball
As the Detachment Commandant of the Marine Corps League, LCpl Jacob D. Hayes Detachment #1426, I am proud to announce that the 246th Marine Corps Birthday Ball, will be held at the Hilton at Granite Park in Plano, Texas on November 13th, 2021. We look forward to being able to continue sharing this Marine Corps tradition after having to cancel last year. Again we are inviting the local community to join us for this elegant evening of rich military history, tradition, and ceremony.
The local Marine Corps League exists to promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, while voluntarily rendering aiding & assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and their families. The League also exists to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps, and by fitting acts, to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions which hold particular interest to Marines. The Marine Corps Birthday Ball is one such occasion.
The Ball also serves as a major fundraising event for the Collin County Marine Corps League. Funds raised through this event assist us in our mission of supporting local Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and their families. It also allows us to support other veteran initiatives that are in line with our mission. Just this year the Marine Corps League of Collin County has provided financial assistance to several Marines, supported the Homeless Veterans Services of Dallas, donated to erecting the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument in Frisco, and awarded three $1500 scholarships. Funds raised by the detachment also helped support our Toys For Tots campaign that provided a Christmas to over 21,000 children in Collin County this past year during the pandemic.
It is with the outstanding support of the Collin County community, including local businesses, organizations, and politicians that we are able to accomplish our mission and enrich the community we serve. Therefore, the Marine Corps League is once again seeking sponsors for this year’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball, not only to join us in celebration at this unique military event, but also to support us in our mission of serving local Marines, FMF Corpsmen their families, and other veteran causes that make our community a better place for all.
The detachment plans to open ticket sales on July 4th We hope to have as many sponsors as possible committed by that time, so that we can recognize them as we start promoting regular tickets sales by radio, print and online promotions.
