WASP 70th Anniversay at SUN 'n FUN

Sponsor a WASP!
- WASP 70th Anniversary Celebration -
SUN 'n FUN 2013


We need your help! Join us in honoring the WASP and celebrating a historic occasion - the 70th Anniversary of the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II.

For the fifth year in a row, Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum will work with the Ninety Nines and SUN 'n FUN to organize a gathering of the WASP and celebratory activities at the 2013 Annual Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In & Expo.

This year we will host 8 WASP. In light of the fact that the WASP had to pay a lot of their own expenses to serve our country during World War II, we want them to be our special guests and honor them for their service and patriotism. They are great Americans and outstanding role models for women of all ages, particularly women pilots.

Please help us to support this effort. A tax-deductible donation of $500 or more will help us cover the costs of lodging, shuttle transport, meals and other incidental expenses for one WASP or reimburse a WASP for airline transportation.

But any donation is appreciated. We will recognize all donors by placing their name on a banner that will be displayed at the Ninety Nines building for the duration of Sun 'n Fun. Donors of $500 or more will receive complimentary autographed photos of our visiting WASP.

The WASP will be based at the Ninety Nines building from April 11 - our official "WASP Day" - until Saturday, April 13.

The Ninety Nines are organizing the annual WASP Luncheon and Forum on Thursday, April 11, 2013, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.
