Come join us for the third annual celebrated event in Scottsdale is being held on Saturday, November 9th, 2019, at the Scottsdale Airport. On the podium will be emcee and nationally syndicated radio host, iHeart Radio’s Melissa Sharpe, along with Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane who will provide Veterans Day comments. The honored guests will be the first two recipients of the Thunderbird Field II Veterans Memorial aviation scholarships and six WWII veterans.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Thunderbird Field II Veterans Memorial and its scholarship program for students interested in careers in various aspects of the aviation industry. Additionally, funds will be used for the educational kiosks at the Memorial. These touch screen kiosks highlight the history of the airfield, various aviation careers and provide a tribute to all Veterans.
Attendees at the hangar party and gala will experience pre-war American culture under the Stearman and then travel to post-war locations (Pacific, Europe & the USA) for a dynamic event experience. To complement the mood, music and ambiance, all attendees are encouraged to dress in 1940’s attire.
The Venue – Starting under the Stearman PT-17 at the Thunderbird Field II Memorial, 15000 N Airport Drive, the hangar party will move into the Gemini Air Group south hangar, mere feet away. The event will celebrate all Veterans. After the somber POW-MIA tribute ceremony, the event will feature a Silent Auction and other opportunities for participants to support Thunderbird Field II Veterans Memorial.
