You’ll be transported by sights and sounds of the historic and renowned CR Smith Museum in Fort Worth, for an evening of elegance, with live band, cocktail hour, and silent /live auctions.  Dine in opulence, amongst the historic DC-3 airliner, mingle with friends, business leaders, as well as members of the aviation industry, and all branches of the armed forces.

With your tax deductible ticket, you’ll receive:

  • Red Carpet experience as you enter and check in for the event
  • Social cocktail hour and Silent Auction
  • A beautiful and dedicated heartfelt program in honor of our namesake, Ashton
  • Fabulous 3 course meal with table attendees
  • An exciting LIVE auction with fabulous prizes to jumpstart our evening
  • Live music and dancing the night away as Ashton loved

We would love to see all our guests dressed in formal attire, but cocktail attire is also acceptable. Dress to impress!

We would like to thank all our Sponsors this year for their support, whose generosity ensures the success of this scholarship foundation for years to come!
