The Victory Ball

SAVE THE DATE
SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 2025

The Commemorative Air Force and the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center will host its annual evening of dinner and dance, The Victory Ball, on Saturday, April 5, 2025, at Dallas Executive Airport. Next year’s ball will feature live music by Hunter Sullivan Band, a cocktail reception, and a VIP Meet & Greet. The evening will include a cocktail hour, a three-course dinner, an open bar, and plenty of time to dance the night away. Guests will enjoy the night in a re-created World War II era.

 

The Victory Ball aims to bring together community, industry, and trade leaders for a night of jazz and dancing. Ticket proceeds will benefit the educational programs of these organizations.

 

Attire

Fashionable Vintage 1940s Cocktail Attire

We encourage people to dress in their best vintage party attire for the ball, so think of old Hollywood glam or vintage military attire.  As an alternative, modern cocktail attire.

Please note: We ask that attendees refrain from wearing Imperial Japanese or Nazi uniforms or clothing with the

Confederate flag. Anyone wearing these outfits will be asked to change or leave.

Mike Doocy is an accomplished American journalist currently working at FOX 4 as a Sports Anchor. His alma mater is the University of Iowa. He attended and graduated receiving his bachelor’s degree.

 

For the past 30 years, Doocy has been bringing the latest sports news to North Texas. He is a weeknight sports anchor at FOX 4. In addition, he co-hosts “Free 4 All” Sunday through Thursday at 10:30 p.m. It’s a show like no other — blending interviews, unscripted opinions, entertainment, and sports.

Mike has been fortunate enough to cover championship seasons from the Cowboys, Stars , Mavericks and now the Rangers! But that’s only part of the local sports story. In three decades of DFW sports coverage, Mike has seen  NASCAR roar into DFW, Tiger roar at the Nelson and Annika break ground at Colonial.  Moreover, he has watched some of the nation’s finest high school athletes, right here in the Metroplex.

Tammie Jo Shults

Tammie Jo Shults possessed an early interest in flying, but she faced various obstacles on her path to becoming a military pilot. Applying her lifelong trait of perseverance, she eventually became one of the first female F/A-18 Hornet pilots in the United States Navy. 

 

After concluding her Navy career, she became a pilot for Southwest Airlines. Tammie Jo's incredible history and talent received wide acclaim on April 17, 2018, when she successfully landed a Southwest Boeing 737 after an engine exploded at high altitude, causing multiple system failures and a rapid depressurization. The successful landing of Flight 1380 in Philadelphia saved 148 total lives including passengers and crew, as detailed in her National Best Seller book, Nerves of Steel. 

 

Tammie Jo and her husband Dean live in Texas, and Dean also enjoys flying for Southwest Airlines. The couple has two adult children and are committed to living out their faith and serving in their community. They are active in their church and volunteer at a school focusing on at-risk youth. While Captain Shults retired from commercial flying in September 2020, she continues to dedicate herself to volunteer piloting and serves on various boards, including the first DOT Women’s In Aviation Advisory Board to the FAA, Pearl Harbor Aviation Board, and the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation Board. In addition, she has received a number of aviation awards, the latest being inducted into the International Aviation Hall of Fame.
