Flight #29 – Welcome Home Party
Tigers on the Prowl Auction
Tigers on the Prowl has chosen their 12 local artists to paint 12 life-size tigers for 12 local charities in this city-wide charity fundraising event. The American G.I. was painted for Central Missouri Honor Flight.
CMHF is a participant in the 2014 Tigers on the Prowl campaign. The CMHF Tiger is sponsored by Manor Roofing and Restoration and has been painted by two CMHF volunteers, Sharon Paulsell and her daughter, Ashley Cooper. It proudly wears a replica of a WWII uniform worn by a member of the 84th Infantry Division, also known as the “Railsplitters”, which saw intense action in the Battle of the Bulge. Our Tiger is titled “The American G.I.” Check him out on his Facebook page shown below.
Contributions may be made directly to Central Missouri Honor Flight with a notation in memo to Tigers on the Prowl and sent directly to the address below. Contributions may also be made via the Tigers on the Prowl website, also shown below. Those donations will “flow” through an organization called “Foundation for the Higher Good” and will then be transferred to CMHF. CMHF and the Foundation are both 501 c (3) organizations.
We hope you will consider contributing to the Tigers on the Prowl campaign and, specifically, to Central Missouri Honor Flight so that we may continue the important work of transporting our aging veterans to see their memorials and receive the recognition and appreciation they never experienced yet, truly deserve before it is too late.
Admission tickets to the auction are $25.00 each
