Got this report from the field about the Friday, April 11th mega fundraiser gala,
Not For Self But For Country for the Frontiers of Flight Museum with some extremely heady headliners including Gala Chair Gina Ginsburg. The poor gal is running non-stop nowadays having just been the honorary chair for the Dallas Arboretum’s Mad Hatter’s Tea.
Oh, why the interest by Gina in the museum. In addition to appreciating STEM, she also understands the nuances of flight. After all the girl is a commercial jetl pilot.
But back to the gala coverage:
“The Frontiers of Flight Museum Gala was not just a time for ceremonial grandeur featuring stellar performances by honor guards, drill teams and musical entertainment by Oscar-contending composers, but according to one Dallas philanthropist it was also a time to celebrate for a good cause. That’s because Gina Ginsburg served as Chair of the Frontiers of Flight Museum Gala, Dallas’ premier event to celebrate accomplishments in aviation, on Friday, April 11. Ginsburg led the charge to generate awareness and support of the gala which benefits the education of the next generation of aviators and astronauts through the Museum’s incredible Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs that reach more than 10,000 students each year.
“The gala’s 2014 George E. Haddaway Award co-honorees were Admiral Patrick Walsh (Ret.) and former Navy officer Roger Staubach were recognized for their service and achievements in the United States Navy and their lifetime contributions and service to their communities. The awards ceremony highlighted the evening with Ross Perot serving as the guest presenter. Meredith Land, KXAS-TV NBC-5 news anchor, served as the emcee.”
The guest list (Ebby Halliday, Jan Collmer, Cheryl Sutterfield, Scott Ginsburg, Marianne Staubach, Ralph Hall, Dot and Walter Cunningham, Calvin Spann, Gwendolyn Spann, Anne-Marie Evans, Chris Irwin, Jeff Widenhofer and Hugh McElroy) was pretty impressive, too.
