  • All California Cadets are Invited

    All California cadets will be invited to the occasion and each may bring along a friend or guest cadet. Along with parent organizers and helpers, we expect to have about 1000 people in attendance. We are looking for Southern California-based Food Service Corporations to donate all the food for the evening so our future AF officers can have a “taste of home” not easily found in Colorado Springs!

  • We need your financial assistance...

    The event is sanctioned by the Air Force Academy in that we will be holding it at Arnold Hall on the USAFA campus, but the Academy will not be providing any financial support or assistance. Instead our Parents Association (UPALAC), which supports Air Force Academy cadets from California and their families, will bear the responsibility of generating all the necessary finances, food, gifts, and volunteer hours. Up-to-date information on the event plans may be found at the California Dreamin' Facebook page.
