The Veterans Special Programs American National Network (V-SPANN) is proud to partner with the legendary Willowbrook Ballroom to bring you:
“Operation: Dancing With The Real Stars Military Ball”.
Join our special guests for this first time event that will bring past and present members of the Armed Forces together for an afternoon of dancing and camaraderie at the historical Willowbrook Ballroom.
The Teddy Lee Orchestra, featuring Chicago singing sensation Peter Oprisko, will provide elegant big band entertainment as the 13 musicians perform a variety of custom arrangements from classic tunes, waltzes, Latin, society, jazz to Dixieland.
Many Veterans and their families have experienced delays and difficulty receiving benefits and services, not in just this conflict, but in the past. These Veterans and their families may not be aware of programs and/or help available in such areas as Healthcare, PTSD, Suicide Prevention, Employment, Housing, Education, Pro Bono Legal Help, Counseling, Grants, Discounts plus many other benefits and programs that have not been brought to the awareness of the Veteran Community through lack of media interest or budget constraints.
The V-SPANN initiative will be a complete information clearing house and distribution center for all Veterans organizations and Government agencies which support our American Veterans.
This event will be video taped for later broadcast.
Ticket prices are $12.00 in advance (through VSPANN.org) or $14.00 at the door (cash bar).
Veterans in uniform or wearing commendations, ribbons, medals or their dog tags will be entered into the afternoon drawing for a large flat screen TV.
All proceeds will go to V-SPANN to further produce programming and create distribution channels for Veteran Service Organizations, our Veteran’s, and their families.
