a Gala Evening to Raise Awareness and Support for Pacific Aviation Museum

“Remember Pearl Harbor,” once a call to arms, now serves as a reminder of resilience, hope and a commitment to peace and friendship. Guests are invited to join Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor on Saturday, December 5, 5:30pm for the annual Gala. Themed “For Love of Country - Pass It On,” the evening will remember the past, honor the present, and inspire the future.

Music, dining, auctions, special guests, and an atmosphere that takes one back in time will turn the Museum’s WWII Hangar 79—its windows still riddled with holes from bullets fired on December 7, 1941--into a ballroom. The evening is intended to honor the spirit of the men and women who serve our country. Standing on the hallowed grounds of Ford Island, guests will be invited to help support the vision to restore, steward, and protect this historic site as both a tribute to the past and a source of inspiration for the future.

With leadership from internationally acclaimed Chef Holly Peterson, Starwood Hotels and Resorts featuring the combined culinary expertise of The Royal Hawaiian, Moana Surfrider, and Sheraton Waikiki Hotel, will produce a unique dining experience.

Marc and Janice Mondavi, Co-Proprietors of C. Mondavi & Family wines will personally unveil Mondavi’s newest Divining Rod selections, donating all wines featured throughout the night. Also joining the evening’s festivities will be special guests David Hartman, the original Good Morning America host, Col. Bud Anderson, American Fighter Ace, and celebrity auctioneer Spanky Assiter, whose auctions are broadcast regularly on cable network.

Museum Executive Director Kenneth DeHoff promises, “This will be an evening of tribute and gratitude. It will also be a night of great fun and excitement with surprise, nationally noted entertainment, a live auction, and other engaging elements.”

The evening will bring civic, corporate and military leaders together inside the Museum’s Hangar 79, an 89,000 square foot WWII Hangar. Participation as a sponsor or table host helps support the nonprofit’s education programs which reach 10,000 young people each year, and their restoration efforts to preserve and use this national landmark site to promote understanding, remembrance and hope.

For information and tickets, visit PacificAviationMuseum.org or contact Director of Development Carol Greene, 808-441-1006, Carol@PacificAviationMuseum.org. The Museum is located at 319 Lexington Boulevard on Historic Ford Island at Pearl Harbor.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Its mission is to develop and maintain an internationally recognized aviation museum on Historic Ford Island that educates young and old alike, honors aviators and their support personnel who defended freedom in The Pacific Region, and to preserve Pacific aviation history.
