Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum Sets Premiere of Virtual ‘For Love of Country’ Gala

Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is hosting its beloved annual gala, For Love of Country, virtually on December 5, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. across all time zones.

Guests from across Hawaii and the mainland are invited to tune in, at no charge, via the gala website, Facebook Live or locally on KHON to experience an unforgettable evening of tribute, performances and celebration honoring the values and valor of four American World War II heroes – from Admiral Chester Nimitz to Hawaii’s own Col. Jack DeTour.

Celebrity guests, including actor Treat Williams and Jon Seda, star of NBC’s Chicago P.D. and HBO’s The Pacific, will offer heartfelt tributes.

Musical stars Tony Orlando, the Dutton Family, Kala’e, Bobby Moderow, Anuhea, Celine Carr, and The Voice’s Thunderstorm Artis, along with his brother Ron Artis, will provide endless entertainment.

Joining the premiere of For Love of Country is free.

However, if you’re interested in purchasing a virtual table or ticket, you’ll receive a delicious meal, along with a centerpiece, wine hand-selected from Napa Valley and artisanal dessert to complete your at-home gala experience. Diners from Hawaii will enjoy a four course fine dining experience provided by Chef Chai, of Pacifica Honolulu. Guests on the mainland will feast on a meal of specially made meats, cheeses, treats, and other culinary delights curated for this event by Zingermans.

Every dollar raised during this year’s For Love of Country Gala will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 by the Ray Foundation, providing essential support to protect America’s World War II Battlefield Museum and the programs we deliver sharing the character of our World War II heroes for generations to come.
