kim kardashianKim Kardashian is going to the HQ Battery 10th Marine Birthday Ball in North Carolina tonight. Isn't that sweet? The reality star agreed to attended the event when an yet-to-be-named Marine asked her to be his date a while back, and Kim rearranged her schedule to make sure she could attend. No word on whether or not the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami cameras will be there as she celebrates with the honorable men and women who serve in our armed forces, but something tells me that there will be no dearth of photos documenting Kim's altruistic evening.

Because if a Kardashian volunteers in the boonies and no one's around to photograph it, did it really happen?

Laff. While I have no doubt that Kim accepted the invitation because a) A-listers like Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake have blazed the trail before her, and b) it's good for her image, I also think that her going to a Marine ball is mutually beneficial, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

She gets credit for doing good, the Marines get attention for the good they do, I get a blog post out of it ... win, win, win. An insider says Kim was honored by the invitation, and in all seriousness, it's cool that she accepted and made it work. I bet she's pretty tired from her whirlwind London trip and from her "best workout ever" this morning, but that hasn't stopped her from fulfilling her obligation.

Here's to a fun night for Kim K. and her servers and suitors. I mean servicemen in suits. God bless the troops!

Do you think it's sweet that Kim Kardashian is going to a Marine ball?
