The City of Pensacola and the Blue Angels Association, along with the First Lady of Pensacola, An Hayward, are joining together to introduce the City to the silent heroes behind the Blue Angels.
The City and the Blue Angels Association will focus on the spouses of the Blue Angels with an event showcasing the spouses of the team. The event will include a photography showcase and a meet and greet at the Artel Gallery on Gallery Night, May 20, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
An Hayward, First Lady of Pensacola, said she relates to the issues of being a supportive spouse and is heavily involved in this project to showcase these spouses. “As the wife of a mayor, I get a lot of questions about what it is like to be married to a politician and it is no different with the spouses behind these famous figures,” Hayward said. “I am all about empowering women.”
Hayward has enlisted her talents as a fashion model and conducted a photoshoot to highlight the spouses of the Blues. “On behalf of the City and myself, I invite you to meet and greet these amazing women at the Artel Gallery on Gallery Night, May 20,” Hayward said.
“Pensacola is a special place not only to the Blue Angels, but also to their families” said Pensacola mayor Ashton Hayward. “Sharing their story is an important part of who we are as a community, the story behind the Blue Angels and their spouses gives a great perspective into the life of a naval aviator.”
