Kim Kardashian made a quick trip to Greenville, North Carolina Thursday to attend the Marine Corps Ball with one of the event planning committee members.

The reality celeb received an invitation several months ago from Sgt. Martin Gardner and agreed to rearrange her busy schedule in order to attend the HQ Battery 10th Birthday Ball.

For the benefit of the fashion crowd who are interested in such things, Kardashian looked hot in a sexy body-hugging floor length gown by French designer Roland Mouret.

As is her usual practice, KK shared news of the blind date with her 16.6 million Twitter fans as she headed back to Miami, where she is busy shooting Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.

Kim tweeted, "Just left the Marine Corps Ball.  Thanks to all of the Marines I had the opportunity to meet tonight! Thank you for all that you do!"

No word on what Kanye West was up to while his significant other was dining with a ballroom full of handsome men dressed in their Marine dress blues.
