The Miniature Aircraft Association of Tri-Cities WA continue to make wishes come true by hosting the third Wings for Wishes over Washington in the last weekend of May. This year’s event was a great success. The club welcomed many spectators and pilots who all contributed towards the $7,189.50 provided to Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington Chapter.
Club President, Clark Hymas along with several volunteers and club members worked with local organizations and a group of RC-related businesses to make the event a success. They were elated to welcome 42 pilots and many visitors from the area. All funds raised were contributed to the Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington Chapter’s mission to grant the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
“It’s gratifying to see so many pitch in to help Make-A-Wish Foundation make wishes come true for children with life threatening conditions,” stated R. Scott Page, Miniature Aircraft Association of Tri Cities member. “I take my hat off to the man that has brought this together the past three years—Clark Hymas.”
The AMA encourages its clubs and members to volunteer and use model aviation to benefit the communities in which they conduct activities. On August 16, many of the Academy’s national chartered clubs will host events in celebration of National Model Aviation Day. AMA and all participating clubs are asked to help raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Information and a list of participating clubs can be found on www.nationalmodelaviationday.org.
