Image result for admiral leroy collinsThe Admiral Leroy Collins Academy Dinner will be held Wednesday, May 31, 2017. This dinner honors our local students who have received appointments to our military academies and ROTC scholarships. The late Leroy Collins, Jr.  was an incredible man who was a true friend and supporter of the Navy League. We are honored to support these great kids and provide this recognition in his name. The Starship dinner cruise has offered us a discounted rate, a DJ upstairs and given us the entire ship for our party. This event is open to the public, seats are limited to 150. This will be a great night out.  If you can not attend, but would like to support this event, you can donate $63 to the Navy League and we will use that to offset the ticket price for the parents and families. The Tampa Bay Navy League will provide tickets for the youth and would like to provide tickets to their parents as well.
