The Fluvanna County RC Flying Club recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward Grant for $175. The club is located in Fork Union, VA.
The club was recognized on their local television and radio stations. They hosted the fourth annual Wings and Wheels 4 PAWS fundraiser on Saturday, June 8th. The event benefited four animal rescues in Fluvanna County. The event included a car show, model aviation, a drone race, food, a raffle, games for kids and much more. While poor weather kept down the number of pilots and car registrations, they estimated almost $4,000 was raised.
The AMA Club Recognition and Reward Program was established to encourage clubs to promote model aviation. The AMA offers clubs cash incentives for positive local media coverage for a public event, public service, club announcement, or other coverage. Click here to learn more about this program.
