The Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation is still functioning, working to preserve and highlight our eastern Carolina aviation heritage, and promote aviation-oriented Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education in our region, even through this pandemic.
Below is an update on our efforts:
- The Board of Directors decided to cancel the 2021 Gala due to the Pandemic. We will continue to update you on future ECAHF events including the Fly-in, Summer Camp, and Fall Membership Event as we learn more about the course of the Pandemic.
- Members and sponsors received a thumb drive with the ECAHF logo which included an introduction with an ECAHF marketing video to inform you of our activities and an informative video of the history of MCAS Cherry Point.
- As you may be aware, ECAHF is patiently working toward growth of our exhibit and STEM workspace at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center to permit an expansion of STEM classrooms and historical aviation artifact display space. ECAHF continues to conduct STEM activities on-line and plan for future events. Hence, the need for income is continuous.
In order to incentivize continuing membership and sponsorship and provide a special aviation experience to a lucky winner, member of the ECAHF Board of Directors, Mr. Adam Persky, has generously offered a flight in his aircraft over eastern NC as an incentive for members to renew their membership, for new members, and for sponsors of ECAHF. All membership renewals (due in January of each year), new members, and sponsors supporting ECAHF will be eligible for the drawing to win this flight over eastern NC. Sponsors who are also members receive two chances to win. We encourage you to continue to support ECAHF with your corporate funding and therefore be entered into the drawing to win this flight. The drawing for Adam’s flight will be held in April and you will be contacted if you are the winner.
- As a reminder, sponsorship levels are as follows, and should it be within your means to sponsor ECAHF again at any level this year, it will be very helpful to our continued abilities to carry on. Your sponsorship will be recognized on ECAHF marketing and membership correspondence and mentioned at future events.
Platinum Sponsor: $2,000
Gold Sponsor: $1,500
Silver Sponsor: $1,000
Bronze Sponsor: $750
Thank you for continued support of ECAHF whose mission is to celebrate the evolution of aviation in eastern Carolina and the essence of the American spirit that has shaped it. Your contributing corporate role is vital to our efforts.
