Warrior Awards Dinner & Auction

Saturday, March 28, 2020 – CANCELED

Join us at the 5th Annual Distinguished Warrior Awards Dinner & Auction for a Fire and Ice themed event featuring dinner, live entertainment, and a silent and live auction. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to support the Academy while enjoying a fun filled evening with parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends.

Fire and Ice is a dramatic theme, symbolizing the battle between two elemental forces. The saying ‘opposites attract’ applies here, as two unique color schemes come together with dramatic effect.

Fire brings heat and energy, passion and desire. Prepare to experience warm reds and oranges, flame effect lighting and a busy, energy driven atmosphere. The ice side of your room, decorated in blues and whites, will have a glittering, frosty charm.

Tickets and Sponsorship packages are now available for purchase!
Please RSVP by Friday, March 13th.

You may also mail a check, payable to:

Army and Navy Academy
Attn: DWA 2020
2605 Carlsbad Blvd
Carlsbad, CA 92008
