Navy to honor its own during black-tie birthday event Oct. 22

Monday, September 27, 2021

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber will help the U.S. Navy celebrate its 246th birthday on Friday, Oct. 22, with the annual Navy Birthday Ball at the Omni Hotel Oklahoma City, 100 W Oklahoma City Blvd.

Marked by special Navy traditions, including the annual cake-cutting ceremony, this black-tie event honors the men and women of the U.S. Navy. Festivities get kicked off with a 6 p.m. reception, followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

The U.S. Navy has been an integral part of the city’s military presence for many years, most notably for its “Take Charge and Move Out” (TACAMO) mission at Tinker Air Force Base. Currently, more than 1,400 active-duty Navy personnel are stationed at the base.

Individual tickets for the Navy Birthday Ball are $80. To register or learn more, visit the event page at

If you or your company would like to sponsor a table of eight, which includes additional recognition, they are available for $1,500. Contact Suzette Ellison Jordan at for table sponsor inquiries.
