6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
Riviera Palm Springs Resort
The AOPA Foundation cordially invites you to an elegant evening of food, fun, and amazing entertainment. The benefit will be set at the vintage Riviera Palm Springs Resort, which will transport you back to a time when Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack ruled the entertainment scene, and Hollywood was in its golden age.
Start the evening off as the AOPA Foundation rolls out the red carpet for you to a courtyard reception. You never know who you will find roaming the grounds of the Riviera Hotel, trying to drop in on the party. Following hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, enter the Grand Ballroom for a uniquely prepared three-course dinner. Throughout dinner, you will enjoy era-inspired entertainment. Franky, Dean, Sammy—they’ll all be there. Keep your eyes peeled for a few guest appearances throughout the evening. You may be surprised by who you see!
Your participation is vital, and when you take part in A Night for Flight, you are creating a legacy with a gift that helps fund the critical, tax-exempt work of the AOPA Foundation to preserve our freedom to fly. This is about the real future of general aviation. It’s about safety for all pilots and their passengers; it’s about growing the pilot population and improving flight training. Without pilots, the airports and aircraft would disappear; it’s about educating communities and the media on the value of GA. The United States is the last country to have any significant GA flight operations, and we need to preserve its future. Ensure future generations are able to experience the practicality and fulfillment of GA flight. If you do just one thing to keep GA strong, take part in this exclusive A Night for Flight gala. Cocktail attire suggested.
Transportation will be provided to/from all AOPA Official Hotels to the Riviera Hotel beginning at 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. Download the transportation schedule.
Cost: $250 per person (half of the ticket price is a tax-deductible contribution to the AOPA Foundation to help safeguard the future of general aviation).
