The AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania, will host a special event on April 25 called “An Evening with the Tuckers!” to help raise money for its new permanent exhibit featuring three Tucker automobiles.
The evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m., following by a catered dinner, live auction and program at 6:45. The event is scheduled to end at 9 p.m.
Tickets are $250 for a single, $400 for a couple, and $1,500 for a table of eight. Black tie is optional and period dress is encouraged.
On display during the dinner will be the original “Tin Goose” prototype, courtesy of the Swigart Museum in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Also scheduled to attend are members of Preston Tucker’s family, including grandson John Jr. and great-grandsons Mike and Sean Tucker, who will share stories and host a question and answer session.
Steve Tremulis, the nephew of famed designer Alex Tremulis, will talk about the design of the ’48 Tucker, and Rob and Bob Ida will discuss design features and construction of the Tucker, as well as the New Tucker ’48 currently on display.
Construction on the permanent Cammack Tucker Exhibit Gallery will begin in May. The exhibit is scheduled to open in late 2014. It will renovate the existing 5,200 square foot Cammack Gallery to create an unparalleled exhibit: the world’s largest and best-known collection of Tucker ’48 automobiles, engines, mechanicals and automobilia from the late David Cammack, Tucker historian and collector.
Advance reservations for the dinner are required by April 15, and can be made by calling (717) 566-7100, extension 101. For more information, check out the Musuem website at www.aacamuseum.org
