With MacDill Air Force Base being located in South Tampa there was no way Schifino Lee could turn down the opportunity to work with the Airlift/Tanker Association in preparation of the 65th Annual Air Force Ball. Schifino Lee developed a poster, sponsor flyer, invitation and program cover for this annual event that honors the Air Force and supports the Tampa Bay community.
The theme of this year’s Air Force Ball is “Generations,” and celebrates the three generations of the US Air Force in the Tampa Bay area. From World War II to the Cold War and Vietnam, the Air Force has played an integral part in the growth of our community.
All proceeds of the event go to Operation MacDill, a program at Monroe Middle School that addresses the academic and social needs of students, many who are transitioning to the Tampa Bay area as children of military parents. Another way the Air Force Ball benefits the Tampa Bay community is by allowing sponsors to fund the attendance of the most junior Air Force members, who may not otherwise get the opportunity.
The Air Force Ball will be held at the Tampa Convention Center on September 29, 2012 and will consist of a cocktail hour, dinner, an address from the keynote speaker, General Norton Schwartz, US Air Force Chief of Staff, and live music. Overall, the Air Force Ball is a great event for an even greater cause, and Schifino Lee is proud to be a part of it.
