Tickets are now on sale for the Second Annual Casper College Veterans Ball, which will be held Friday, Nov. 11, beginning at 6 p.m. The keynote speaker is Samuel Rollin “Rollie” Dunnuck, who will speak to the mission statement of the Casper College Veteran Club: “Never stop moving forward.”

Dunnuck is a member of the Casper Police Department, a Marine Corps veteran, and team leader of the Natrona County chapter of the Mighty Oaks Foundation. According to Nick Whipps, Mighty Oaks provides peer-to-peer resiliency and recovery programs that serve as the catalyst to assist our nation’s warriors in dealing with challenges related to the struggles of daily military life, combat deployments, and the symptoms of post-traumatic stress.

The military ball is a long-standing tradition among all branches of service. “This is an opportunity to bring everyone together to celebrate their service and have some fun simultaneously,” Whipps, veteran and military student services coordinator, said.

The semi-formal event will be held at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Casper. The event will be catered and includes a formal dinner, social hour, receiving line, and dancing. Tickets to the ball must be bought in advance and are $50 per person.

To purchase tickets, go online, or visit the Casper College Veteran Resource Center on the second floor of the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center or contact Veterans Club President Caleb Lindsay at 503-347-6550 or The Casper College Veterans Club sponsors the ball.
