Frontiers of Flight Museum presents Apollo VII 50th Anniversary Gala
Fifty years ago on Oct. 11, 1968, the world witnessed the first manned Apollo flight go into orbit and around our planet 163 times. The Frontiers of Flight Museums hosts the nation’s first official celebration of the Apollo missions, which begins with Apollo VII in 2018 and culminates with Apollo XVII in the fall of 2019.
The Frontiers of Flight Museum, home of the Apollo VII spacecraft, will commemorate this special 50th anniversary of the Apollo VII mission with an astronaut star-studded gala fundraiser honoring Lunar Module Pilot Col. Walter Cunningham.
Honorary Chair The Honorable Kay Bailey Hutchison, a co-founder of the Museum, will be joined by Event Chairs Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, Second Lady Jan Patrick and many Apollo mission astronauts to celebrate the occasion. Radio Talk Show Host Mark Davis will blast off the evening as the 2018 Gala emcee, ensuring that all have a fun-filled experience.
The event will kick off with a VIP reception followed by a dinner and program that recognizes the accomplishments of this iconic NASA mission and its crew. Guests who support the event at the $25,000 level and above will enjoy a particularly memorable evening by having a NASA astronaut seated at their table during the dinner program.
