Celebrate Vallejo - Hawaiian Style!

It's once again time to "Celebrate Vallejo" at the Museum! "Celebrate Vallejo" is our annual gala event to celebrate our Museum and our diverse community. This year we will “Celebrate Vallejo” Hawaiian Style! Join us for an evening of Hawaiian and Asian/Pacific cuisine, tropical drinks, and South Seas entertainment! The event will be held on Friday, November 5th at the Museum. Festivities commence at 6:30 p.m. and will include elegant hors d' oeuvres, complimentary cocktails, raffle, silent auction items and a live auction.

You can help make this event a great success:

• Donate items for our live and silent auctions. Ideas for auction items include: time-share vacations, weekends or overnights at vacation homes, services you or your company can provide, an outing on your boat, gift certificates, antiques, gift baskets, etc. The sky's the limit . . . use your imagination!

• Purchase tickets for the event. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.

• Encourage your business or organization to become an Official Sponsor. Your $400 sponsorship gives you:
- A table for 8
- Table signage for your business or organization
- Listing in the Celebrate Vallejo program.
- Special recognition during the event

The goal of Celebrate Vallejo – Hawaiian Style is to raise much needed operational funds so we can continue to develop programs at the Museum and to reach out to build awareness of our unique community. Vallejo and Mare Island, by the way, have many interesting historical ties to Hawaii. In December 1874, Hawaiian King Kalakalua visited Mare Island while on his way to Washington D.C. for a meeting with President Ulysses S. Grant. Later, in 1965, Mare Island launched the USS Kamehameha, one of seventeen nuclear submarines built at the Shipyard. Please join us on Friday, November 5th to share the fun, Hawaiian style!
