Beach Community Bank of Fort Walton Beach, FL and the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce are proud to welcome the Doolittle Raiders to our community for their 71st Anniversary Reunion - The Farewell Tribute, from April 17 through 20, 2013. While there are several public events scheduled, there are three for which tickets are required. Most events are SOLD OUT - what tickets are available can be found at www.doolittletickets.com.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet these storied World War II heroes and hear their accounts first-hand.
Tickets and sponsorships are limited. Remaining tickets -- along with some Raider Reunion items -- are available at www.doolittletickets.com. A $5.00 per order service charge will be added to each order to cover shipping and handling. (Note to FWB Chamber members: This is considered a Special Event, and "Chamber Bucks" may not be applied to purchase of these tickets.) We cannot take telephone reservations for tickets, nor can we send invoices. All tickets must be purchased and paid for in advance.
Please be advised that all tickets purchased are non-refundable. While we anticipate that at least three of the four surviving Raiders will be attending these events, their appearance is subject to health issues and other factors beyond our control.
If you have questions about these events, or would like to purchase your tickets in person at the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, please call 850.244.8191 for details.
