Wings for Wishes

Wings For Wishes (WFW) was founded in February of 2011 by Eric Kendall. The inspiration for Wings For Wishes is a young man by the name of Dylan Levy.  Eric was moved by what Make-A-Wish did for Dylan and his family, and Eric wanted to do his part and help Make-A-Wish grant more wishes for kids like Dylan. 

Wings for Wishes is an annual fun fly event held in Polson, Montana, to benefit Make-A-Wish Montana. All proceeds help fulfill a child's wish.  Money is raised several different ways at the event. Pilots pay a landing fee, raffle tickets and silent auction items are up for bid.  The event also features a BBQ with hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks and more. 

Visit wingsforwishes-mt.com for more information on this event.
