If You Missed The Disabled American Veterans Concert at Stewart…

We just may have a few pictures, and a lot of them are from the car show! We had a visit from the airport general manager, Ed Harrison. Ed stopped in to show his support on his day off. The Armonia Band played while hiding under tents from the scorching sun. Sadly, they wouldn’t let us enter a helicopter in the car show, but we decided to post a bunch of pictures anyway. Nothing like good old American Muscle. If you didn’t make it, you missed out on a lot of fun! Come to the next one!

An Amazing Opportunity For The Marius Ivascu Aviation Foundation!

Dear Family and Friends,

We have the chance to raise $11,000 for The Marius Ivascu Aviation Foundation before July 1st. Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, that’s only a day away!

We know we raised money shortly after Marius passed, but we just couldn’t let this opportunity slip away! We can’t wait to share these funds with hopeful students to obtain their dreams in Aviation.

Marius’ scholarship fund has been selected by The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan as one of the first fundraising campaigns for a new online giving platform called GiveGab. And to help us get off to a strong start, GiveGab has given us a starter donation of $1,000! Additionally, the company has agreed to MATCH every dollar for the next $5,000 donated BEFORE July 1st. That’s a chance to raise $11,000!!!

Just to be clear, we are asking you for a total $5,000 before July 1st. We are asking you to reach into your pockets and give again, to help us with this one-time, incredible opportunity. And here is what’s in it for you: If you donate at least $25 between now and July 1st, your name will be entered into a drawing. If we reach our fundraising goal as stated above, on July 1st we will randomly select a name, and The Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund will donate $1,000 to one of the charities listed below, as determined by the winner of the drawing:

– Make-A-Wish Foundation
– No Kid Hungry, to end childhood hunger in America
– Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
– Autism Speaks

With your generosity, we can take advantage of this incredible opportunity. Please help us to help others here: https://www.givegab.com/nonprofits/community-foundation-of-orange-and-sullivan-ny/campaigns/marius-ivascu-aviation-foundation

Thank you!
