Juneau Empire: “Light Flights,” a fundraiser organized by Coastal Helicopters and the Juneau Mendenhall Flying Lions Club, are scheduled to take place on Friday between 4:30-7:30 p.m. at Gate 1 in the North Wing of the Airport Terminal Building, lower level. Tickets go on sale starting at 3 p.m.
Juneau residents are invited to head to the airport for the annual helicopter ride that will take passengers over the Mendenhall Valley to view Christmas lights. “This is a magical time for people of all ages,” said Hurley.
Helicopters are provided by Coastal Helicopters and all Coastal personnel, including pilots, mechanics and admin, donate their time for these flights. Petro Marine donates the fuel for this event.
Proceeds from this fundraising event go toward the Children’s Tumor Foundation and Lions Club projects.
