Mr Cullerton and his wife Steve will be signing a limited edition of a painting of his P-51 Mustang flying over St Catherine's Church on its way home to Steeple Morden.
He is one of three men who served with the 355th Fighter Group when it was based at Steeple Modern during the Second World War.
Mr Cullerton, who was with the 357th Squadron, and Bob Kuhnert and Julius Moseley, both of the 354th Squadron, will be launching the appeal at Litlington Village Hall on Tuesday evening.
