Please join us for the Hargrove Foundation’s 3rd Annual Gala on Thursday, November 30th, 2017 at the Battle House Hotel in downtown Mobile, Alabama.

We are privileged to have world-renowned astronaut Captain Scott Kelly, USN Ret. as our keynote speaker for this year’s event. During his record-breaking year in space, U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly captivated the world while laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration. And while science was at the core of Kelly’s groundbreaking expedition—it is his life lessons and personal stories from 229 miles above Earth and the path that led him there that provide such unique and valuable advice on pushing one's own limits.

Do not miss your chance to meet Captain Scott Kelly in person at the Hargrove Foundation Gala The Sky is Not the Limit. With a journey that exemplifies the power and resilience of the human spirit, from U.S. Navy fighter pilot to record-holding astronaut, Kelly reveals the choices and life events that paved his way. An American hero whose contribution to humanity is as far reaching as his out-of-this-world adventure, Kelly will reflect on his journey with his trademark candor, humor and humility. From the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, to the long-term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth itself, Kelly will deliver a truly one-of-a-kind experience.  

Captain Scott Kelly is author of the memoir, Endurance: My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars which will be released in Fall 2017 and will be available at the gala. Signed copies are included as part of our partnership program.
