5th Anniversary Dinner Celebration
From Pacific Aviation Museum
Guests will get the very first look at the newly stabilized Ford Island Control Tower as the PBS Little Big Band strikes up the popular 1940s tune, "Accentuate the Positive!" and friends of Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor gather on Thursday evening, 5:30 to 10PM to dine, dance, and celebrate the Museum's 5th Anniversary. The fundraiser for the Museum's education and restoration projects will also honor those who have made important contributions to the nonprofit aviation attraction, and to those who serve our country.
Special Museum awards for the evening will go to Bill Paty for the "Building Bridges Award" and to BAE Systems and the University of Hawaii CRDG, for the "S.T.E.M. Education Award."
The Basis Foundation of California, which provided the funding for the Museum's Lt. Ted Shealy Restoration Shop, the 1940s working machine shop housed in Hangar 79, is hosting 16 members of the Wounded Warrior Project who will be honored at the gala. The Museum is a continuing sponsor of returning veterans.
Bill Sage is the emcee.
The public is invited to spend a gala evening reminiscent of the Big Band era and the Hangar Dances of 1941 Hawaii, with military, civic, and community dignitaries. Guests will be treated to 1940s musical entertainment and dancing, enjoy award-winning cuisine by Chef Chai of Chai's Island Bistro, fine wines, and a full bar.
The fun begins at the front door with aircraft and vintage military vehicles, and a silent and live auction will be held during the event for items such as trips and hotel stays, fine wines, jewelry, and art.
