Saturday Sep 20, 2014 6:00pm to 10:00pm
As our current aerospace and aviation workforce ages and retires, our country is headed for a severe deficit of American professionals to continue our future aviation, space and other scientific programs. If we desire to continue to lead the world in this area, America needs more students in the fields of aviation and aerospace: engineers, astronauts, pilots, educators, scientists, mathematicians, and fields of medicine. By getting our youngsters involved in their own futures early in their school years, they are given alternatives to the drug and gang infested lifestyles too common in many neighborhoods. To this end, our organization needs your support and good will, and your financial assistance in providing these alternatives. We cannot do it all by ourselves! We cannot -we will not - forget our children!
The Shades of Blue organization and its loyal sponsors will host the 2014 Annual Gala Dinner at Denvers Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver. CO. This museum is one of only 750 out of a total of 16,000 museums nationwide to be awarded accreditation by the American Association of Museums. This Event, set in the beautiful atrium of the Museum, takes place on September 20th, 2014.
At the dinner ceremony, as in the past, we will appropriately honor educators and members of the scientific and aero-space communities ( e.g. pilots, astronauts, corporate officials, and Shades of Blue members) for their demonstrated ex-ceptional support to students during the past year. This years Honored Guest is a BIG SURPRISE , to be honored for his contribution to the education of Denvers school students.
During this special fun-filled and informative night, the Museum will open several displays and hands-on unique
scientific and historical exhibits to those who attend. Kids from six to a hundred will be able to fulfill their astronaut dreams and tour this exciting collection nature and space oriented exhibits. Doors will open at 6:00 pm allowing time to visit many of the hands-on educational exhibits loved by students and adults alike. Our 2014 SHADES OF BLUE Ed Dwight Jr. Awards and Corporate Recognition Awards follow dinner. The evening will conclude at 10:00 pm. Tickets are just $125 per person for all this!
Corporations may purchase any one of several levels of support, reserving full tables for their employees and executives, and participating in the underwriting of our event. Shades of Blue will publically acknowledge Corporate Sponsors for their support, adding to their corporate pride of doing what is needed, at a time when it is desperately needed. Rates are on the accompanying RSVP flyer.
Please join us. Your valued investment in time and resources is essential in helping us maintain Americas current and future lead in aerospace and aviation. Together we will assure that our students will be ready to assume leadership in the most critical tough, demanding, and rewarding fields well into the 21st century. After all, it is OUR future we hold in our hands.
We will have 20 active students and Air Force Academy Cadets attending as our guests. If you cannot attend, please
consider sponsoring these honored invitees. Your contribution of $125 per dinner will cover these costs. Perhaps you could sponsor several?
Just look around you. Just look!
THEY are our children. THEY are our future. THEY need our help. America needs their help.
