Christmas Performance and Gift Giveaway at TAM

Take a break from the holiday hustle! This year we are fortunate enough to offer two Christmas events for our friends and family.

First is “A Christmas Carol with Charles Dickens” performed by the Independent Shakespeare Company featuring David Melville as Charles Dickens.

Join us on December 14th at 6:00pm for a magical escape through pure storytelling with musical accompaniment and dramatic interjections by Miss Kalean Ung.

“David Melville has an almost preternatural gift for wry understatement and comic timing.” – LA Weekly





The second is “Christmas in Compton” on December 23rd from 10 am to 4 pm.  Eastwood and H.O.P.E Ministries will be hosting a gift giveaway with music and food to start off the Christmas weekend.

American Airlines Donates $25,000 and a $90,000 Auxiliary Power Unit


Top executives from American Airlines take a trip to Compton to present the most prominent donation in the history of Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum.  Along with the presentation of a $25,000 check, American donates an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) intended for powering an MD-80 or regional jet.  This piece of maintenance equipment retails at $90,000 and signifies the start of our airline mechanic training program.  With the help of American Airlines, TAM now has the ability to produce quality mechanics poised to take the aviation industry by storm.  This support sparks plans to upgrade the museum to Smithsonian quality and expand into a national program.  Our success hinges upon the support of the amazing people who work at American Airlines.  Thank you so much!

TAM hosts The Compton Initiative’s 10th Anniversary Fundraising Gala

10th Anniversary Fundraising Gala

October 22 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00pm   l   $100

Tickets ON SALE, click here!


The Compton Initiative is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 with a 40-year commitment to restore the City of Compton by painting homes, schools and churches on quarterly workdays in partnership with individual volunteers and other organizations. Starting with a small group of volunteers eager to show love and inspire hope, we’ve grown to thousands of caring workers of all ages and backgrounds in yellow shirts who serve across the city. We offer community organizations, service groups and non-profits an opportunity to make a sustainable impact in Compton by instilling a sense of care and pride within each neighborhood.

Proceeds from this event directly benefit our quarterly beautification events, which cost from $288,000-$300,000 annually.  Your sponsorship will impact the lives of countless children and adults living in substandard conditions within Compton’s city limits. When you sponsor the 10th Anniversary Fundraising Gala, you provide financial support to help with painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, churches and public spaces throughout Compton.

Since 2006, we’ve beautified over 573 homes, 372 buildings at 30 schools, 35 church buildings, 31 public spaces, 2 medical clinics and 134 murals. With each beautification event, grateful residents marvel as their homes go from dull to vibrant in just a few hours, and astonished students return to freshly painted schools and a new sense of pride.

The 10th Anniversary Fundraising Gala will be our first community event at the Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum, a grassroots nonprofit venue bringing aviation history to life and empowering the dreams of youth to take flight in South Los Angeles. The event begins at 5:30 pm with live music and entertainment in the airport hangar. Guests will meet community leaders, enjoy delicious food, and can take part in a silent auction featuring sports memorabilia, travel packages, and more. Individual tickets for this event are $100 and sponsorship begins at $1,500.

We take pride in hosting this special evening in Compton. Our attendees are an ethnically diverse, well educated, community active crowd. The age range of attendees is 18-70+, which includes city leadership, individual donors, corporate sponsors, and community partners. We expect over 250 guests to attend.

Please direct all questions to Terri Herrema, Director of Fund Development:
