HOUSTON, TX. – Million Air hosted an aviation-themed party on January 15th, 2012, at San Diego’s Air & Space Museum for the attendees of NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Convention. Million Air partnered with the USO San Diego to give every attendee the opportunity to make donations to support the upcoming Marine Corps Trials for the Warrior Games at Camp Pendleton next month.
“We love throwing a party every year for the Schedulers & Dispatchers. It’s a way for Million Air to say thank you for working with us and to have fun” said Roger Woolsey, CEO of Million Air. “We also felt that it was important to give the aviation community the opportunity to honor our wounded military by supporting the USO San Diego in gathering donations for the Warrior Games. Million Air believes very strongly in serving those who serve us.”
The Million Air USO Blitz Party was a WWII themed party that had over 850 guests attend. Guests were able to enjoy the Air & Space Museum, flight simulators, music and drinks.
“We were given a unique opportunity this evening by Million Air,” said John Dooley, President of USO San Diego. “We are so appreciative to capture the attention of those who attended tonight because this group of people not only respect the services that the USO provides our military service members, but they also are the people who have the ability to have a great impact on encouraging their counterparts to contribute to USO San Diego.”
Since 1941, USO San Diego has worked in San Diego to make sure all of our courageous men and women in uniform – who risk their lives every day to defend our freedoms – know they have not been forgotten.
USO San Diego is not a government agency and receives no direct federal, state or municipal government funding. The non-profit organization is funded primarily by the generosity of the San Diego community.
