Event description
Join us for an evening of celebration as we raise money for the Williamsburg Aviation Scholarship Program through a live and silent auction!

About this Event

OUR MISSION

The purpose of WASP is to create career opportunities in aviation, help build and sustain local aviation, and support national programs designed to mitigate projected pilot shortages. Through the volunteer efforts of retired military aviators, as well as active commercial and recreational pilots, WASP is able to offer local high school teens the highest level of expertise and instruction in aviation. From retired F-22 and F-16 pilots to current airline pilots, the level of instruction is unrivaled.

OUR BENEFICIARIES

ABOUT THIS EVENT

The Williamsburg Aviation Scholarship Program relies on the donations of citizens, both local and nationwide, to fund the academic and flying instruction necessary for each student to receive a pilot's license. Each scholarship is valued at over $11,000. This is the inaugural gala for WASP! Our hope is that we raise enough money at this event to fund all of the students in our upcoming class.

GUEST SPEAKER: CHRISTINA OLDS

Christina Olds bounced around the world with her USAF fighter pilot father Robin Olds and Hollywood actress mother Ella Raines. Raised mostly in Washington D.C., England and Colorado, she graduated from Vassar College with a BA in English/Creative Writing in 1974 and spent 25 years living in San Francisco where she raised her daughter Jennifer Olds Newman. In 2003 Christina moved to Colorado to be near her father, who had retired from the air force as a brigadier general in 1973. While caring for her father during his terminal illness, Christina promised to complete his unfinished memoirs from his gathered notes. Robin Olds passed away June 14, 2007. Fighter Pilot; The Memoris Of Legendary Ace Robin Olds was published April 13, 2010.

Christina will have signed copies at the Gala!
