December, 2011 through May, 2012: The Gilmer’s Held a Moving Sale Fundraiser
Starting in late December, 2011 and lasting through May, 2012, the Gilmer’s held the Alex Gilmer Flight School Scholarship Moving Sale Fundraiser. The Gilmer’s sold many possessions in and around their house, as they had a temporary job move to Australia, and could not take furniture and such with them.
The Moving Sale netted the Scholarship over $10,000, these funds went directly to the Scholarship Fund and will help provide flight lessons for future aviators. The Gilmer family donated smaller items of ~$1,200.00 that did not sell to Evergreen Christian Outreach (local charity to help families). On behalf of the Gilmer family and Scholarship Board, we thank all Volunteers, Contributors, and Donators from the bottom of our hearts who participated in the Moving Sale Fundraiser. We consider it a great success for future Scholarship recipients.
We may have more fundraising events in the future (we welcome suggestions and volunteers). Please continue to spread the word for applying to the Flight School Scholarship, and donating via Pay Pal or via snail mail.
Thank you all for keeping Alex’s memory and his love of Flight alive.
