Welcome to the 2015 All Service Academies' Ball.

This year marks the 17th anniversary of Western Pennsylvania's Annual All Service Academies' Ball. The event honors the young men and women who attend our five U.S. Service Academies and offers an opportunity to meet the dedicated young people who have accepted the difficult military challenges before them.

At the formal event, the attending cadets and midshipmen, along with their escorts, are individually presented in a Grand March by this year's toastmaster, Mike Harvey, WTAE Chief Meteorologist. A formal sit-down dinner follows with Commander (R.) Matt Shipley as the Guest of Honor. The evening concludes with dancing until midnight.

This year, along with dancing after dinner, play some casino games! At the Ball each cadet and midshipman attending will receive free 'play money', and more 'money' will be available for purchase by family and friends. Great prizes will be awarded at the Ball - items every cadet, midshipman, family member or friend will want!

We are asking for you financial assistance to support the ball. Western Pennsylvania All Service Academies' Ball is a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
