Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation (PCVF) will host a unique gallery exhibit featuring patriotic and military works of art for sale during the Silver Anniversary 25th Annual Military Ball, 5-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort. The Military Ball honors local veterans and active duty service members.

In addition to the art show and sale, the ball will feature former Navy SEALs lead by Marc Brakebill of Beyond the Teams, and live music by The Replicas.

The art show and sale will raise funds for PCVF and include more than 30 pieces of patriotic and military art. A few highlighted include:
