Former NASA astronaut and Army Lt. Col. Charles "Sam" Gemar will be the featured speaker at WAI Air Captial City Chapter's annual fund raising dinner on May 6 at Stearman Field Bar & Grill in Benton, Kansas. Gemar was a crew member on three Space Shuttle Missions.
The Air Capital City Chapter raises funds annually to send low-income girls who participate in a local program called "Future Women in A STEM Career" to Space Camp. In 2013 the chapter sent 25 girls, this year the goal is to send 40.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $60/person or $100 for two—tickets can be purchased at www.AirCapitalCityWAI.org. For more information contact Kathleen Webb at 316-305-6939 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
