9th Annual BBQ on the Ramp
Saturday, September 27
A Huge Success!!
Over 900 guests attended the 9th Annual BBQ on the Ramp honoring Warren M. Boley, President of Aerojet Rocketdyne. Mr. Boley was awarded with the 2nd Annual Aerospace Museum of California Education Award for his leadership in fostering aerospace education programs in the community.
Guests enjoyed exploring the Museum’s STEM activities, wine tasting, delicious BBQ and a spectacular fireworks show presented by Pyro Spectaculars and donated by McClellan Park. Dave Bender, KOVR, Channel 13 served as the Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer.
The event raised over $200,000 thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and guests. Robotic students from F.C. Joyce Elementary School and Luther Burbank High School JROTC demonstrated their hand-on learning activities to the guests. Proceeds from the event help support the Museum and our Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education programs.
