The year 2019 will mark a number of milestones in aviation and aerospace history, and there will be much to celebrate when we gather for our third annual Blue Skies GalaMoonstruck, on Saturday, May 18 at 6:30 pm. A glamorous, romantic setting will be created for this special evening at one of Houston’s newest event venues, the Revaire, while nature provides a full moon.

Moonstruck will help celebrate the Apollo program during this 50th anniversary year of the moon landing and will honor a notable business aviation pioneer, Universal Weather and Aviation. We will also remember President George H.W. Bush, a member of the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame and a generous supporter of the museum’s mission.

You and your guests will enjoy an elegant, black-tie evening as they join to support the newest addition to Houston’s vibrant museum scene. Come mingle with explorers and achievers of the past, present and future while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a seated dinner and live entertainment.  Stay to dance the night away and have the chance to bid on out-of-this-world, exclusive items at silent and live auctions. 

We would be honored and grateful to include you among the guests for this dynamic fundraising event. Proceeds from the gala will support the museum’s mission to serve the educational needs of our region through exciting, hands-on learning programs focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education. After just one year in the museum’s new location at Ellington Airport, more than 10,000 young people from over 126 schools have explored the museum’s galleries and exhibits and experienced the wonders of aviation. Over 63,000 visitors from 47 states and 18 countries have come to see the museum’s collection of historic aircraft, explore Texas’ rich aviation heritage and honor the inductees into the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame.
