Midway Gala

The 11th annual Midway American Patriot Award Gala will be hosted aboard the USS Midway Museum on Thursday August 31, 2017. 

The Midway American Patriot Award honors extraordinary individuals who exemplify the finest of American ideals, recognizing individual acts as well as cumulative lifetime achievement. This year’s award will be presented to four of our very own Midway Docents, Will Abbott, Jack Ensch, Ev Southwick and Bill Stark, on behalf Naval Aviator Vietnam prisoners of war. 

Event proceeds benefit the ‘No Child Left Ashore’ scholarship fund aboard Midway. These scholarships benefit tens of thousands of students annually from under-served San Diego County schools to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and participate in overnight learning opportunities aboard Midway.

Your financial support helps to ensure that every child in San Diego has access to this amazing academic laboratory, regardless of their school’s financial challenges.
