Buzz Aldrin Ventures cordially invites you to attend the Official Apollo XI 50th Anniversary Gala with Buzz Aldrin on Saturday, July 13 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library’s Air Force One Pavilion in Simi Valley, CA. This black-tie/white-spacesuit event will commemorate those iconic first steps on the moon made by Neil Armstrong and Aldrin in 1969.


A half-century on from the launch that changed the course of history, the evening will honor the mission, team, and crew that ended the Space Race in a decisive victory for all of mankind.


The stars will come out that evening, as Aldrin is joined by Apollo Astronauts Walt Cunningham, Charlie Duke, and Dave Scott, celebrity Gary Sinise, Music Sensation Tommy James, who will perform some of his 1969 hits, GRAMMY-winning artist Gloria Gaynor who will sing the National Anthem, and more than a dozen other astronauts and celebrities.


Guests will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel back to the iconic “magnificent desolation” with Aldrin as he recalls setting foot on Earth’s moon for the first time, as the other astronauts in attendance share their stories.


The gala will include dinner underneath the retired Air Force One, arguably the most important aircraft in the world, that served seven U.S. Presidents (from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush) and toured the Apollo XI crew around the world upon their return, an exclusive Apollo XI Memorabilia Silent Auction, a special photo opportunity with Aldrin, and much more.
Go down in history as being one of only a handful of guests to join in this evening. Proceeds will benefit the launch of Buzz Aldrin’s Human SpaceFlight Institute, a nonprofit organization (status pending), which focuses on utilizing a collaborative approach to advancing human spaceflight beyond low Earth orbit.


Secure your SPACE today and join us as we celebrate and honor one of humankind’s greatest achievements: the first-time man set foot on the surface of the moon.
