“USS Hornet Museum Receives $100,000 Matching Grant From Texas Foundation

KINGSLAND, Texas, Sept. 12, 2011  – The Wreyford Family Foundation has awarded a $100,000 matching grant to the USS Hornet Museum in Alameda, CA. The grant will assist in the museum’s relocation effort to move the USS Hornet to San Francisco.

“Our organization is proud to be a partner with the USS Hornet Museum on its relocation plans and believes that this effort will ultimately be as successful as the USS Intrepid and USS Midway are in their own communities,” said Deborah A. Wreyford, President, Wreyford Family Foundation.
