Dear Museum Supporter:

The 17th Annual Cradle of Aviation Museum Air and Space Gala will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019. The Gala helps to support the development of new activities and educational programs, and this year honors the innovations of leaders in aviation, technical achievement, and leadership.

We are honored to present this year’s Spirit of Discovery Award to Apollo 10 Commander Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Stafford, the Leroy R. Grumman Award to Perry K. Youngwall, CEO & President, Transaero, Inc., and the Aviation Leadership Award to Huntley A. Lawrence, Director, Aviation Department, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Through your commitment to this event, you can assist the Cradle of Aviation Museum in its effort to grow as an exciting cultural landmark on Long Island. Please join our efforts by becoming a sponsor of this event, placing an advertisement in our tribute journal or donating an auction item. 

We appreciate your past support and hope that you will join us for the 2019 Gala!

Michael Stromer
Chair, Board of Trustees
