The Stafford Air and Space Museum in Weatherford, OK is one of the locations that will be hosting the Apollo 17 40th Anniversary. Special Honored Guests include Gene Cernan, Jan Evans, (widow of Ron Evans), Joe Engle, Al Bean and Gen. Thomas Stafford.

The evening consists of cocktails, mingling through the museum, and then dinner and then a reception. There will be a silent auction during the cocktail hour and winners will be announced at the end of the evening. Auction items range from spacecraft models to signed prints.

SASM is honored to host such an event and is excitedly working on the finishing touches!

An update from the museum's Facebook page:
Our Apollo 17 40th anniversary celebration is sold out. Invitations were sent out earlier this season to our corporate sponsors and we had an overwhelming response with enthusiam from them and we are happy to say this event is sold out! Sadly, this enabled us to invite individuals and have individual ticket sales. However, this once in a lifetime event needs to be shared! Keep reading each day for updates and pictures to see what we're working on! Thanks to all who called and messaged us about tickets. We hope to have more events that everyone can attend!

Anyone going to the Apollo 17 event in Weatherford who would be willing to help me out in getting a Joe Engle signature on my STS-2 crew photo (already signed by Truly)?

I've been trying to get in the same room with GEN Engle for a while now, to no avail...

This statement confuses me. It is an error?

I'm guessing they meant the sponsorships enabled them to invite individuals rather than have individual ticket sales.
