Mike Vawters Memorial - Charity Fundraiser

by Benny Behrens   December 8, 2019

On November 16, 2019 Alvin RC Model Airplane Association held its annual charity fundraiser at its field in Alvin, TX. The club had planned a fun fly for the previous week which had to be canceled due to wet field conditions. Due to the many items donated for sale at the fundraiser Alvin RC decided to hold a simple event consisting of sale of items through silent auction, priced “garage sale” items, several tables were set up with donated items where attendees could simply take what they wanted and donate based on their conscience and of course simple donations were accepted also.

Even though weather conditions were poor and attendance was not what the club hoped the event was a success and generated $2,150 in donations. The money donated was used to purchase gift cards which were given to the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Deputies then distribute the cards to less fortunate individuals/families in the county.

This has really turned into a great way to work with the Sheriff’s Department to support local folks at Christmas time. Thanks to everyone that donated and helped make the event a success.
