FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Local Aviators Along with Lockheed Martin Raise Money for Colorado COVID Relief Fund and to Support Essential Workers
It’s not just a flyover, it’s a fundraiser
PRESS RELEASE: DENVER, CO. – May 8, 2020 – In collaboration with Colorado Governor, Jared Polis and Mile High United Way, a group of local aviators will donate their time and resources to raise money and awareness for the Help Colorado Now program through a Flyover Fundraising Parade and Aerial Salute to essential workers.
Oil and gas is known for being a boom and bust industry. Its leaders and employees are no strangers to dealing with dramatic fluctuation in commodity prices due to factors outside their control. Now, the combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and the price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia have created a dual negative impact that is hitting the industry especially hard. In spite of this combination of challenges that have led to lay-offs and billions of dollars in losses, industry members have stayed true to their roots and continue to provide philanthropic support to local communities.
The follow was originally shared in the November Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver newsletter, featuring, DISH, a B:CIVIC annual investor.
