Red Tail Project to Host Tribute to Tuskegee Airmen June 6

The Red Tail Project cordially invites you to be part of a very special evening of history and fun.

WHEN: June 6, 2007, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

WHERE: The Minnesota History Center in St. Paul.

The Red Tail Project is dedicated to telling the story of the Tuskegee Airmen. It is restoring a rare World War II P-51C Mustang and developing a traveling museum to help promote understanding of the Airmen’s perseverance against discrimination at home and the Luftwaffe in Europe. As you may know, the Tuskegee Airmen were a World War II fighter group composed of African-American pilots and support personnel who fought discrimination and prejudice in order to serve their country. Their remarkable story of vision, hope, hard work and discipline proved that individuals can accomplish the remarkable, regardless of the obstacles, and remains as relevant today as it did sixty years ago. The evening will include the opportunity to mingle with Original Tuskegee Airmen, a delicious dinner, private screening of the new PBS documentary "Red Tail Reborn", and a silent auction. The proceeds from this fund-raising event will go toward the continuing restoration of the Mustang featured in the documentary, and the traveling museum and educational programs featuring the Tuskegee Airmen’s accomplishments and history. The Red Tail Project’s program is focused toward youth — specifically, at-risk youth — to inspire them to follow their individual dreams and succeed, just as the Airmen did.

Cost for this historic evening and dinner is $125 per person.

VIP sponsorships are also available. As a VIP sponsor, you will receive:

1. Full dinner for eight guests (an Original Tuskegee Airman and his guest will also dine at your table!).

2. A stunning hand-carved P-51C Mustang autographed by the attending Airmen.

3. The inspiring biography of Colonel Charles McGee, autographed by the Colonel himself.

4. A half-page ad in the event's Program Guide.

The investment for this VIP Sponsorship opportunity is $5,000.
