LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 03, 2019
Los Angeles International Airport’s Flight Path Museum will salute the glamour and excitement of aviation around the world with a one-of-a-kind evening on Thursday, October 3rd, from 5 to 9 p.m. on the airport tarmac.
Themed, “A Global Affaire,” the museum’s festive 24th annual Gala will benefit Flight Path Museum’s preservation of Southern California aviation and aerospace history. Deborah Flint, Los Angeles World Airports CEO, will serve as keynote speaker.
The evening will begin with a red-carpet welcome, followed by international hors d’oeuvres, hosted bar, behind-the-scenes airfield bus tours, and a gourmet dinner served in a specially erected pavilion on the tarmac. Guests will have an opportunity to explore the museum, preview the new “Apollo at 50” exhibit, and enjoy a spectacular view of aircraft takeoffs and landings on the LAX south runway complex.
A special program highlight will be presentation of the museum’s coveted Guiding Light Award to Beverly and Vincent Migliazzo in recognition of their longstanding support of the museum’s aviation education program, according to Agnes Huff, PhD, Flight Path Museum president.
“Vince and Beverly have long been key supporters of our Flight Path Flyers simulator training classes,” said Huff. “They have inspired generous contributions from others as well, including the American Legion and Westchester Woman’s Club.”
The Gala also will feature presentation of competitive scholarships to promising students planning careers in aviation or aerospace. Included are the annual Charles “Pete” Conrad, Clay Lacy, Morrey Plotkin, Anton Acherman, and Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation scholarships.
Sponsors to date include American Airlines, Iberia Airlines, Los Angeles World Airports, Specialty Restaurants, Delta Airlines, and UPS among others. Silent auction items include airline tickets, hotels, unique aviation items, dining certificates, and a one-year membership to The Private Suite at LAX, the easiest and most luxurious way to travel.
