CREECH AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — Planning has begun for the 2014 Las Vegas Air Force Ball, scheduled to take place at the South Point Hotel Casino in Las Vegas Sept. 27 beginning at 6 p.m.

At this year’s ball, Airmen, families, and friends will have an opportunity to “Celebrate the Airman’s Story” as they gather to commemorate the Air Force’s 67th birthday.

“The theme ‘Celebrating the Airman’s Story’ was chosen because we wanted to focus on the real reason for this event – the people,” said Capt. Nick Rodriguez, Las Vegas Air Force Ball committee co-chair. “People are the Air Force’s most important asset, and the ball is the perfect way to honor the commitment and sacrifices our Airmen and their families make every day.”
Lt. Gen. Tod Wolters, 12th Air Force commander, is expected to be the guest speaker for the evening.

In addition, the committee plans on showcasing various heritage displays celebrating the history and people of Nellis AFB, Creech AFB and the Nevada Test and Training Range, a musical group for entertainment, and a guest photographer.

Ticket sales are expected to begin Aug. 1. Approximately 800 tickets will be available, and pricing will be tiered according to pay grade.

The committee took additional precautions to ensure families were taken care of for the evening.

“There will be options for childcare, options to reserve rooms at the hotel for a discounted rate, and Airmen Against Drunk Driving will have volunteers standing by to provide safe transportation as well,” Rodriguez said. “The goal is to get everyone together for a night of entertainment and camaraderie, while also making sure our Airmen and families get home safely.”

For guests who need childcare for the evening, the Nellis AFB Child Development Centers will remain open until midnight Sept. 27. Childcare is free for families who have been referred by their first sergeant or the Airman and Family Readiness Center. For those without referrals, the cost will range from $20-25 per child. Reservations will be open from Aug. 15 until Sept. 22, and will be made on a first come, first served basis.
