Janauary 2016 TACHI COMMUNITY BREAKFAST SUPPORTS NAS LEMOORE AVIATOR MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION
LEMOORE, CA – Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino hosted a monthly community breakfast on Friday, January 29, 2016. This month’s breakfast benefited the NAS Lemoore Aviator Memorial Association (AMA). Nearly 400 members of the local community were in attendance to support this wonderful organization. A total of $2,033 was raised at the door, and Tachi Palace was pleased to match that amount for a total contribution of $4,066. LCDR Ben “Julie” Charles, who is a founder of the organization and a naval aviator stationed at NAS Lemoore, was in attendance and happily accepted the donation on behalf of AMA.
NAS Lemoore AMA is a Non-profit 501c3 organization started to honor all aviators stationed at NAS Lemoore who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our nation. Their initial fundraising effort built a memorial dedicated to fallen aviators. The memorial is a 7′ tall bronze statue that overlooks Lemoore’s main runway. The statue is surrounded by memorial grounds lined with donor bricks engraved with the names of those who donated to the cause. The association is now raising funds to support the families of loved ones lost in an aviation tragedy. They also hope to create a scholarship fund in memory of the brave aviators who are no longer with us.
The Tachi Palace community breakfast is a monthly event which features a full breakfast buffet, informative community news and business networking, as well as raffle prizes and the opportunity to mingle with old friends and make new ones. A $5 contribution is requested at the door which is donated to the organization chosen for the given month.
