The ICAS Foundation has announced five auction packages on which members can bid during the live auction portion of the annual Chairman’s Banquet on Thursday, December 6 at the 2018 ICAS Convention in Las Vegas. All proceeds for the live auction will benefit the ICAS Foundation in its mission to preserve the legacy of aerial performers, fund aviation scholarships to support future aviation careers, and assist families of those in the air show industry who have been struck by tragedy.
“Due largely to the generosity of the companies supporting this year’s auction, the Foundation has assembled an especially awesome collection of packages in support of the important work being done to assist the air show community,” said ICAS Foundation Board Chairman Judy Willey. “We hope that members will come prepared with their checkbooks and an eagerness to back the Foundation’s important work.”
The first package is the “2019 ICAS Convention & Las Vegas VIP Experience” which will include two complimentary 2019 ICAS Convention registrations, VIP suite accommodations at the 2019 convention, round trip limo service to and from the airport, four tickets to any Caesars Entertainment show or concert, dinner for four at Gordon Ramsay Steak, and preferred table locations for ten at the 2019 Pinnacle Awards luncheon and Chairman’s Banquet. Additionally, the package will include two passes to indoor skydiving and a machine gun range, both located in Vegas.
