Chairman, Steve Davison


Jim Vance from Bonaire won the top prize in last year’s Museum of Aviation Foundation Auction and Raffle held on July 13.

Mike and Alicia Long of Kathleen won the second place prize of $3,000 and Leslie Smith of Bonaire won the $1,000 third prize. Murray Hansen won a large cash pot in the “50/50 blinking-pin heads-or-tails” game.

The event was a success with more than 400 items auctioned off and 35 restaurants and caterers providing a Taste of Local Cuisine to a crowd of more than 1,000 attendees.

The car dealers involved in the raffle this year were Five Start Automotive Group, Hughes Honda, Jeff Smith Auto and Lowe Toyota.

“The Museum thanks the hundreds of businesses and individuals that donated items, food and hard work to make this event a big success,” said Pat Bartness, President and Chief Operation Officer of the Museum of Aviation Foundation. “We had great support this year from a large volunteer committee of workers headed up by Chairman Steve Davison, owner of Clean Control; Raffle Co-Chairs Margaret Cox and Rick Drury; Procurement Chairman Jimmy Autry and many other volunteers from Robins Air Force Base and the community.”
