Historic USO Dance Party

November 10th 2017  6:00 PM to 10:30 PM

Hep Cats, Slick Chicks, and GIs, don your vintage togs and get ready to swing, sway and boogie to the big band sounds of the 1940s!

During WWII PWC members were asked by the commander of Hamilton Field Air Force Base if they would host USO dances at their club and provide their daughters as dance partners for some wholesome R&R for his troops. The PWC members were happy to comply. This inspired us to recreate this theme for our newest fundraiser. 1940s attire and WWII Uniforms are encouraged! Look for the vintage jeep marking the entrance to the party.

On the eve of the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Petaluma, the clubhouse will pulse to the rhythms of big band sounds provided by the highly sought after Swing Fever, with Brian Gould and Denise Perrier.

Clueless on the dance floor? Swing dance teacher Bill Gabbert, will show you how it’s done.

Also on the program are: The Stevens Sisters Act who will croon some close harmonies, LynAnn King singing songs from the Golden Era and the Liberty School singers who will open the show with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.

Simple foods will harken back to the wartime atmosphere.
Enjoy an Aviator Cocktail in the Officers’ Lounge.
Not in a cocktail mood? Beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverages are served canteen style!

Special Attraction: On Display will be uniforms worn by General William Westmoreland, Fleet Admiral Wm Halsey (Flying Tiger) and Lt. General L.B. Puller WWII

All proceeds go to the PWC Restoration Fund to maintain the historic clubhouse.

As it has for over 100 years, the club continues with event rentals, membership events and community activities. The PWC is a 501(c)4 Non-Profit Social Club

Tickets to the USO Dance are $50 each, and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets prior to event date.
