BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Experience all the food, fashion, and fun of a 1940s USO-themed dance, beginning at 6:30 p.m. March 10 at Hillcrest Country Club in Bartlesville, presented by OK Mozart, Inc.

Floyd Haynes and his Orchestra, featuring vocalist Jae Simmons, will provide the music. Haynes and Simmons are well known around Oklahoma and promise plenty of 1940s big-band classics. Savor 1940s cuisine such as assorted canapés, old fashioned meatballs, star-spangled cookies and more. Enjoy retro cocktails, and check out the thirst-quenching Coca-Cola bar.

Be sure to come dressed in favorite ‘40s style clothes and hairdos. Active and retired military personnel are encouraged to wear their uniforms.
History buffs will want to get in on the trivia contests, and don’t forget to wear dancing shoes because prizes will be awarded for best dancing and costume. Check out the many YouTube videos for instructions on swing dancing.

Tickets can be purchased online at https://okmozartuso.eventbrite.com. Tickets are $100 each, with four cocktail coupons, or $75 each without the drink coupons. Active and retired military personnel receive a $10 discount. The fundraiser will benefit the upcoming music festival. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Oklahoma USO.
