Fundraising goal doubled at Fitz’s Spare Keys!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our fantastic fundraising event at Fitz’s Spare Keys on Tuesday, February 19th!  We counted just over 85 in attendance, so it was a great turnout!  We were able to collect just over $2200, blowing away our $1000 goal for the evening.  This will help to fund next year’s scholarship winners and help them towards their goal of becoming professionals in aviation.

We also presented last year’s scholarships to the two recipients.  Kelsey Fultz won the Future’s Unlimited Scholarship and will be attending this year’s Women in Aviation Conference in Nashville as a result.  Crystal Reveles won our Private Pilot Training Package, and will use the headsets, flight bag, and training software to continue her goal of becoming a private pilot.

Thank also to our generous donors and sponsors for the event, especially Fitz’s!  We couldn’t have done it without you.  Check out pictures from the event in our Photos folder!
