Coast Guard Ball table

The Cape May County Coast Guard Community Foundation is proud to host the annual Southern NJ Coast Guard Ball.  This gala event kicks off the annual Coast Guard Community Week at the Wildwoods Convention Center.   Military balls combine tradition and glamour and, as part of a special partnership, community members are welcomed to join the festivities.  This Black Tie event is an opportunity for the public to experience a formal Coast Guard Ball while also connecting the community with the Coast Guard members from around the region.  The celebration transitions from sophisticated and formal to all-out-dancing-fun over the course of the evening.

The evening begins with a cocktail reception prior to military formalities commencing at 7 pm (1900).  The program will include a remembrance table ceremony, remarks from the USCG Training Center Cape May, and formal toasting for all of our military branches.   We have also  been honored to have the United States Coast Guard Ceremonial Honor Guard provide an exceptional performance at past events.  Dinner is scheduled for 7:30 pm (1930) followed by a keynote speaker.  The night will conclude with dancing and music provided from a local DJ.

The Southern NJ Coast Guard Ball is an opportunity to experience military traditions and hit the dance floor all in one evening.  It’s another event that shows why Cape May County is a Proud Coast Guard Community.
