Screening raises funds for honor flights
Submitted By Michael Emerson
Fremont Firefighters IAFF Local #1689 has organized an awareness and fundraising event to benefit the Honor Flight Network Ð Northern California. The Honor Flight Network is a 501(c)3 organization that flies WWII and terminally ill veterans to see the War Memorial erected in their honor in Washington DC. Our goal is to raise $30,000 in an effort to send 33 Bay Area WWII veterans and 17 ÒGuardiansÓ to see THEIR war memorial.
We are hosting a screening of The Honor Flight Ð One Last Mission at Ohlone College in Fremont. This event is co-hosted by Senator Ellen Corbett and Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison. Proceeds and donations will be given to the Honor Flight Network of Northern California.
