Children’s Hospital Has Record Proceeds From AirShow

Wednesday, March 1, 2006

The T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital Foundation announced record-setting proceeds - $235,771 - from the October 2005 AirShow Chattanooga.

According to Duffy Franck, the foundation’s president, “We are very excited about these results - our largest total ever. These funds will greatly enhance many of the important services at Children’s Hospital. This is a winning situation all the way around for our community - a great event with great results.”

Airshow Chattanooga was held on Oct. 29 and 30, 2005, at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport. At the time, Morty Lloyd, AirShow Chattanooga director, announced record crowds in excess of 125,000 spectators.

Mr. Lloyd said, “From the best performer line-up, to the largest attendance, to the best weather - Airshow 2005 will stand out as our best Airshow yet.”

2005’s aerial event was the seventh since 1992 staged in Chattanooga to benefit Children’s Hospital.

Susan Burkett O’Hare, Children’s Hospital administrator and Erlanger senior vice president, said, “Events like Airshow Chattanooga provide an opportunity for our community to rally in support of Children’s Hospital, the only pediatric hospital in our region and a great asset to us all. We are grateful to all who attended.”

Judy Bellenfant, a member of the Children’s Hospital Foundation Board who served as Children’s Hospital’s Airshow coordinator, said, “Our sponsors and volunteers deserve a huge round of applause. Without their support, we could not have put on such an exciting and profitable event. The Airshow committee volunteered nearly 5,000 hours, not to mention the additional hours put in by other groups. The willingness of both sponsors and volunteers to do whatever it took to put on a great event was an inspiration. The effort will pay off every day at Children’s Hospital.”
