Reflecting on the 2024 Annual Ties & Tiaras: The Royal Ball 

The 2024 Annual Ties and Tiaras: The Royal Ball, hosted on Saturday, February 24th at Naval Station Norfolk, was a resounding success. Attendees, both adults and children, graced the event in their finest attire, from sleek suits to elegant princess dresses. Families relished in the opportunity to spend quality time together, partaking in a delectable dinner, indulging in sweet desserts, and dancing the night away.

Chief Petty Officer Chris Penn, accompanied by his daughter Emnet, cherished the chance to bond with her and witness her forming new friendships. Born and raised in Boston, Chief Petty Officer Penn shared his passion for sports and his unwavering commitment to the Navy, where he has served for 20 years, as the driving force that brought him to Hampton Roads. When questioned about his impression of the Mid-Atlantic region, he extolled its diverse and multifaceted environment.

As the evening unfolded, Chief Petty Officer Penn expressed his intention to take full advantage of future MWR events. His positive experience at the ball reflected the sentiment shared by many attendees, affirming that the event served as a delightful opportunity for families to come together and create lasting memories. The 2024 edition of Ties and Tiaras was undeniably a night to remember, leaving a lasting impact on all those fortunate enough to attend.
