10th Annual Gala
Saturday, April 30th, 2022

Join us on Saturday, April 30, 2022 for the Champaign Aviation Museum's

10th Annual Fundraising Gala! Doors open at 5:30pm and activities of the evening include complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, musical guests Chelsea and Paul Melcher, fly-by (weather permitting), a delicious dinner and dessert, silent auction throughout the evening, and special guest speaker Captain Scott O'Grady. 


As an Air Force F-16 Pilot, Captain O'Grady was shot down over Bosnia while helping to enforce a United Nations no-fly zone.  Alone, facing death, capture, and the elements, Scott discovered within himself the courage to go on, relying on his skills to survive for almost six days behind enemy lines.  He details the teamwork, preparation, and leadership responsible for both his survival and his dramatic rescue by the U.S. Marines.  Come hear the amazing story that inspired the film, "Behind Enemy Lines."
