23rd Annual Wings N' Wheels Community Airport Day
Saturday, September 7, 2013
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Wings Field (KLOM)
Blue Bell, PA
The sky could not have been more blue! The sound of children's laughter melted into the beat of our great band and the roars of plane props and vintage car motors. It was a spectacular day!
The 23rd annual Wings N' Wheels event held on Saturday, September 7, 2013, at Wings Field was a huge success. An estimated 2,000 people came out to see the displays of vintage aircraft and classic cars, to take scenic plane rides over Blue Bell, to participate in our famous Wing-Off and to enjoy the various children's activities like the Franklin Institute's Flight Show.
It was a wonderful opportunity for Angel Flight East pilots and patients to reunite, and for all who attended to collectively support the important work of AFE.
Thank you to our Sponsors!
On Angels’ Wings Gala
was a Grand Success!
More than 200 guests joined Angel Flight East on April 20th at Meadowlands Country Club for our largest fundraising event of the year! We like to extend our most sincere appreciation to all of our Gala sponsors, donors, attendees and volunteers who helped make this year’s event a huge success.
In the words of Lisa Ranzino, guest speaker at the Gala and mother of former AFE passenger, Brianna Ranzino (pictured to the left), “AFE is a wonderful organization. They more than just made sure Brianna made it from our home in New Jersey to Boston and back every three weeks in 2009-10, they allowed us to concentrate on what was most important, getting Brianna better - without the added stress of getting there and the financial strain that commercial transportation would have added. Thank you, Angel Flight East, for being there and for making a positive difference in our lives.”
Now a high school senior, Brianna’s life was saved through a combination of the efforts of Angel Flight East and a ground-breaking procedure that re-grew her esophagus from her own stem cells at Brigham Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts. She is just one of thousands of people whose lives have been improved through the generosity of our donors throughout our 20-year history. All of the Gala proceeds will directly benefit AFE’s medical and compassion missions, as well as our disaster relief efforts, allowing us to provide Hope in Flight!
