The National World War II Museum’s “2013 Whitney Bank Victory Ball” is themed On the Front Lines of Freedom. This gala evening will honor war correspondents and WWII veterans and their “personal reflections during the war that changed the world.”

On Friday, June 14, chairs Ann and John Hairston and Suzanne and Michael Mestayer will begin the evening with the Superior Energy Patron Party, which will be followed by a seated dinner in the museum’s U.S. Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, featuring delicacies by John Besh. The ball will specifically honor Dr. Lester Tenney, Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams, Ralph Morse, John Whitehead, Maurice “Hank” Greenberg and Major Norman Hatch (awarded in absentia). Entertainment for the evening will be Jump, Jive and Wail, “a world-class show that captures the music, style and comedy of the WWII era.” The night will conclude with the fourth annual “Otto Candies, LLC How Sweet It Is! Dancing and Dessert Soirée,” featuring more dancing, and delectable bites and drinks in the Stage Door Canteen and American Sector Restaurant.

All proceeds will benefit the museum’s local and national educational outreach initiatives, which reach more than 85,000 students each year.
