On Saturday, February 9th, 2013 the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association will host the thirty-third edition of the annual AFCEA NOVA Valentine’s Ball. This fun, social event mixes and mingles 700 industry, military, and Federal Government telecommunications and IT professionals, including their significant others in an elegant environment, the newly remodeled Tyson’s Sheraton Premier. Enjoy dining, dancing all while bumping elbows with some of the brightest minds in the industry.
During the event AFCEA NOVA honors a number of Wounded Warriors from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda and their significant others. They are residing in the hospital and get permission and assistance to attend and receive recognition from all participants of the event .
In addition, the Ball is an opportunity for Industry partners to reinforce their commitment to the community. This year, as in the past, any surplus funds from the Valentine’s Ball go towards educational scholarships through the AFCEA NOVA Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are available to students studying the hard sciences including mathematics, information technology, computer science, and others.
Sponsorships are still currently available but hurry – they are selling out fast! Individual tickets are not available for this event. All sponsors receive a reserved table with space for 3 couples of your choice and 2 randomly-assigned military/government couples.
