2018 Midway American Patriot Award Gala
Honoring Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly
The Midway American Patriot Award honors extraordinary individuals who exemplify the finest of American ideals, recognizing individual acts as well as cumulative lifetime achievement.
The USS Midway Museum is honored to present the 12th annual Midway American Patriot Award to former three-term Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, and her husband, former astronaut, Mark Kelly for their incredible service to country and community. These American Patriots will become the newest recipients in a line of esteemed honorees.
Event proceeds benefit the “No Child Left Ashore” scholarship fund. These scholarships benefit tens of thousands of students annually from under-served San Diego County schools to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curricula and participate in overnight youth 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. Students from nearly every school district in San Diego County participate in our programs. (Averaging 400 programs each school year.) Our popular overnight programs hosts 45 sessions annually. This includes The Little Skipper Program, a special overnight adventure designed for Pre-K through 1st grade youngsters.
Our objective is to make sure every child in San Diego County has a chance to Live the Adventure and Honor the Legend!
