2014 BGCKC Kids Auction
Accepting Donations for Event on Saturday, October 4, 2014
Are you a private pilot? Read on!
Dear PNWAIAA membership, in order to support our growing partnership with the North Seattle Boys and Girls Club, we are soliciting items for donation to the 2014 BGCKC Kids Auction on October 4, 2014. The auction is one of the major fundraisers for the North Seattle club and the county and we would like to come up with at least one unique gift from the PNWAIAA that is sure to be a big hit with the crowd! Items for auction could include wine or gift card baskets, unique Seattle experiences or a cool one-of-a-kind gift. One item that we believe would be a crowd favorite – and unique to the aviation community – would be a flight aboard a private airplane, so if any pilots in the group would be interested in donating or know of an organization that would participate, please let us know. Please contact the Boys and Girls Club Liaison if you are interested in donating or finding out more information about attending the auction. Thank you!
