Osh for a Cause featured celebrity pilots and the opportunity for fans to connect with their favorite aviator while supporting youth in aviation.
In attendance were well known aviators, such as the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, Allison Leeward, Deon Mitton, and Jessica Bauman.
Funds were raised through the sale of raffle tickets for prizes donated by Precise Flight, Deon Mitton Photography, MGF, and Grypmat.
In addition, GlobalParts.aero donated a gift to match funds raised through ticket sales.“We couldn’t be more thrilled for the success of our inaugural Osh for a Cause fundraiser,” said Malissa Nesmith, Senior VP/COO of GlobalParts.aero. “On behalf of GlobalParts.aero and our partners at Precise Flight, Inc., thank you to all of our celebrities and attendees for coming together to support young aviators world wide.”
