The Purpose of The Freedom Flight Fundraiser

Dear Freedom Flight Supporter:

St Cloud Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #428 may once again be the host for the 2005 annual Freedom Flight, Inc. POW-MIA hot air balloons fundraiser. The event includes a raffle, silent and live auctions, a steak dinner and dance.

Last year, over 500 veterans, family and community members participated in the event, bring in thousands of dollars to help Freedom Flight balloons, vehicles and equipment keep in operating condition.

Freedom Flight, Inc. is a non-profit, educational IRS recognized 501-c-3 organization #41-1617166. Its purpose is to educate the public about our missing American servicemen and those held as prisoners of war. We also try to raise awareness about missing children.

All of our Board Members, pilots and crew are volunteers and we have been seen in over 40 states, Canada, France, Belgium and Germany. We hoe that you can somehow contribute to this year’s event by donating an autographed or other item of interest to our silent or live auction or by contributing a tax-deductible donation.

Over the past years, we have received items from Bob Hope, Dean Martin, Presidents Reagan, Carter and Ford, Jamie Lee Curtis and numerous sports teams, athletes, music and movie personalities.Thank you in advance for considering our heartfe1t request. Please mail any donated items to my business address to assure that they arrive in good condition. We look forward to your participation in this year’s event.
