“Come Fly with Me,” notMYkid’s annual fundraiser, drew 330 guests to Hangar One on April 21. The reception and silent auction took place in the Red Room at the hangar, with a Champagne lounge hosted by Vinum 55. Guests then entered Hangar One with the sunset in the background.
The evening honored Nicole Bidwill with the Inspiring Greatness Award, which was presented by notMYkid founders Debbie and Steve Moak. The program included a tribute video to Bidwill, along with a paddle raise and live auction by auctioneer Letitia Frye.
Sal Valentinetti from America’s Got Talent presented a live concert, and guests topped off the night by dancing, enjoying the photo booth and taking flight in the Microsoft Virtual Reality flight simulator.
Wendy Lentz chaired the event, which raised $300,000 to provide prevention education for low-income schools across Arizona.
