90% of our program funding is raised at our Anniversary Dinner gala. Attending this event is a great way to show your support of the sea services.

Anniversary DINNER

Our Anniversary Gala, which annually marks the 1902 founding of the Navy League here in New York City, brings together Council members, senior sea services personnel, business leaders and philanthropists. Each year we honor individuals from the military and corporate worlds who have made significant contributions to the sea services.
