Patti LaBelle Entertains at Goddard 50th Anniversary Dinner
Singer Patti LaBelle entertained hundreds of past and present Goddard employees at a special dinner held on May 30 to mark the center's 50th anniversary.
Following the day's "Maryland's Place in Space"
event, a room at the Baltimore Convention Center was transformed into a dining area and dance floor. The evening began with light hors d'oeuvres, a slide show of Goddard and NASA photographs and some brief presentations.
Then LaBelle took the stage to raucous applause. Following her performance, music was provided by DJ Scientific, otherwise known as Mark Branch, a Goddard engineer.
The event was sponsored by the American Astronautical Society and supplemented by ticket sales to employees and guests.
