Willowood USA announced the company would be the primary supporter of the 2012, Ageless Aviation Dreams, Central California, Veterans Dream Flight Tour. The dates for the tour are Oct. 11, 12, 15, 16, and 17.
The Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation is non-profit organization built on the philosophy of “Giving Back To Those Who Have Given”. The foundation and its supporters honor senior military heroes living in long-term care communities by giving them a Dream Flight in a 1942 Boeing Stearman, the airplane used to train many military aviators in the late thirties and early forties.
Willowood USA’s support of the 2012 Central California Dream Flight Tour will allow thirty extremely deserving WWII and Korean veterans to experience the thrill of an Ageless Aviation Dreams, Dream Flight. “Without Willowood’s very generous donation, this leg of the tour would not be possible”, says Darryl Fisher, founder of the Ageless Aviation Dreams foundation.
Joe Middione, Vice-President Willowood USA states, “All of us at Willowood USA have a deep appreciation for our military veterans, many of which are farmers living here in Central California.
They protected us during our nation’s time of need and feed us when we are hungry. We want to show our appreciation and do something very special for them. I am so excited that Willowood USA has this opportunity to help these “Golden” individuals experience the thrill of an Ageless Aviation Dreams Dream Flight”.
The Willowood USA, 2012 Central California, Veterans Dream Flight Tour will start in Sacramento, Calif., on Oct. 11 and stop in Davis, Modesto, Salinas, Paso Robles, Bakersfield, Visalia and Fresno before finishing up the tour on Oct. 17 in Fairfield.
