Sunshine Chapter 246th Army Birthday Ball

The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that supports America’s Army.  The AUSA Sunshine Chapter in Central Florida is proud to announce that we will celebrate the Army’s 246th Birthday by hosting a Virtual Birthday Ball on the 19th of June 2021. Given the restrictions due to COVID-19, this year’s event will look different in some ways while keeping all our most treasured ceremonial highlights and an overall night of fun and celebration! For example, we will use the concept of “Party Pods”, where sponsors and participating Government and Industry partners can host a small group of participants that will be linked in via the virtual platform at “Virtual Tables”. Our hope is that this meets the Social Distancing and other COVID-19 safety guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) while still allowing participants to “feel” as they’re attending a black-tie event.

The Sunshine Chapter has been organizing the Army Birthday Ball for the Orlando Army Community for more than twenty-five years. It is with pleasure that we offer your organization a great opportunity to become a valuable sponsor of the “Army’s 246th Birthday Ball”. The Chapter is seeking sponsorships to support the event, our scholarship initiatives, and to help honor our soldiers, veterans, and their families. Your sponsorship will also provide a first-class night of entertainment for Active Duty Service Members, Wounded Warriors, Senior Veterans and Gold Star families participating in the Ball.
