2009 Runway of Hope

You are cordially invited to join us for the Kaye/Bassman Charitable Foundation’s 8th Annual Fundraiser, “Runway of Hope” Gala and Auction.  Mark your calendars for October 17th, 2009!

For the second year in a row, net proceeds from the dinner and auction grew to over $180,000!  This dream was only able to take flight because of the terrific support, assistance and donations provided to us by all of you – our honored guests.

Our Captain for the evening and Auction Emcee is HLN Anchor Robin Meade.  Robin is the anchor of HLN’s morning show, Morning Express with Robin Meade. Meade also serves as co-host with Dr. Sanjay Gupta for Turner Private Network’s AccentHealth, a program offered in physician waiting rooms focused on consumer-related health stories.

Join us again as we make history for our charities, by relishing in a piece of aviation history at the spectacular Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas.  Our altitude knows no limits as we make a tremendous impact on two incredibly deserving charities – the Muscular Dystrophy Association and CITY House.

In conjunction with our support of the MDA, we welcome the cast and crew of the multi-award-winning documentary “Darius Goes West.”  Recording their journey in the summer of 2005, this film follows the then 15-year-old Darius (with the help of eleven closest friends) as they set off on a road trip across the US in hopes of getting Darius’ wheelchair featured on MTV’s hit show “Pimp My Ride”.  This film has garnered worldwide acclaim and has inspired a nationwide grassroots movement to raise money for, and awareness of, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Coming attractions for the live and silent auction are waiting in the wings – but with past items like a South African Safari Big Game Hunt, a Celebrity Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas,  or tickets to Entertainment Tonight’s Exclusive Emmy After-party, this event will be first class.  You’ll enjoy an evening of exhilarating bidding, delicious dinner, dancing and open bar.

We encourage you to become a Sponsor or Patron of this event and join us in supporting these fine charities. Together we can make a lasting impact and make this a memorable event. Call us to explore how your Sponsorship can make a difference.  We invite you to come fly with us October 17th at the Kaye/Bassman Charitable Foundation’s 8th Annual “Runway of Hope” Gala and Auction.
