2024 New Year’s Eve Blitz Fundraiser Party!

 

Run for cover!

 

Are you ready to have an exciting New Years Eve doing something out of the ordinary and

unique? Get ready for Lawton’s newest and most authentic 1940s Themed New Years Eve Blitz

Fundraiser Party on Sunday December 31st, 2023.

 

from 8:00pm to 1am. Doors open at 8pm and Blackout till late

This party is being hosted by The West Coast Jazz Society & VFW Post 5263 Club, 103 SE 20th Street, Lawton, Oklahoma 73507), and will be transformed into an air-raid shelter,

complete with hurricane lamps, reconnaissance maps and blackout curtains. We are

prepared to wow you with attention to detail in creating beautiful and original interiors. With

ration books in place of menus, reproduction 40’s posters, jam jars and enamel mugs replacing

classic glassware, and all manner of authentic Blitz-era displays, guests will find themselves

transported to a time when life was precious, friendships fleeting, and community spirit ruled the

day.

It will be a cavernous den that contains more alcoholic provisions and Blitz spirit than Churchill’s

bunker. We will be recreating the wartime glamor of 1940s London. Victory curled ladies and

uniformed soldiers can expect a night of live music, classic 40”s cocktails and 40’s-style revelry.

Live big band (scaled down) will perform a repertoire of upbeat 40s classics and modern favorites remixed to

resemble the style of the era, the perfect soundtrack for land girls and the home guard to cut a

rug on the dance floor. The bar will be stocked with carefully chosen selections of modern takes

on classic cocktails to wash down hearty snacks from the mess hall while listening to amazing

Classic 40”s Swing & Jazz tunes.

The place to be on Sunday December 31st, 2023 - is The VFW Post 5263 Club, Lawton OK. Brought to you by

The West Coast Jazz Society & VFW Post 5263 Club.

The Bunker

Pin up your victory rolls and wave your Union Jack with pride, dust off your stripes and polish

your medals. Turn out that light and pile into our 1940s air raid shelter for the Blitz Party

 at The VFW 5263 Club. The evening will host Oklahoma’s finest live swing band, performers and

DJs. Big band tunes will play for fun-loving party girls who long to share a Gin French cocktail

with a handsome soldier in uniform.

DRESS CODE

1940s glam, home front utility clothing and allied uniform all welcome. Whilst we appreciate the

need to "make do and mend" The Blitz Party operates a strict 1940s dress code.

Zoot Suiters are welcome
