Legends & Legacies Fundraiser

| June 2, 2017 | Parties

Honor Flight San Diego’s Legends & Legacies fundraiser took philanthropy to new heights.

THE PARTY Honor Flight San Diego, a nonprofit that takes WWII and terminally ill senior veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their memorials, toasted its Legends & Legacies fundraiser at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, where altruists and vets gathered to raise money for a forthcoming flight.

THE SCENE The event featured keynote speaker Rear Adm. “Mac” McLaughlin, president and CEO of the USS Midway Museum; WWll veteran guest speaker Sid Zimman; and music by Peter DeLuke and the Mellotones and entertainment by magician Magic Mike. S.D. favorite Bob Lawrence, former Channel 10 military reporter, served as the event’s emcee.

THE HIGHLIGHTS Thanks to a $125,000 donation from McLaughlin on behalf of the USS Midway Foundation, an additional $100,000 in matching funds from The Green Foundation, and proceeds from the silent and live auctions, the affair raised enough for nearly two flights. -Misty Milioto
