Fundraiser Benefits ACA Wounded Warrior ProgramShareThis
On 26 April 2012 over 150 Air Commandos, supporters and volunteers gathered at the North Light Yacht Club In Niceville for the 1st TASTE of NORTH BAY Tapas and Wine Tasting event. This event was the concept of Mike Agin, President and CEO of Pioneer Technology Corporation (PTC), one of ACA’s corporate partners, and was held to help finance the Air Commando Association work with wounded Air Commandos and their families and help meet needs not covered by other organizations.

The night featured the culinary talents of six different Chefs, who each prepared one or more of their specialties. Alaskan salmon and halibut were flown in by PTC. Each specialty was matched with white and red wines and even a particular beer by Wine World. MSgt Ken Cave, a First Sergeant from Hurlburt Field, gave a first hand account of a wounded Air Commando from his unit and the support he received from ACA and others coming home from the war. Finally, delicious assortments of desserts were provided to put the perfect ending on a great evening.
The Air Commando Association wishes to thank all of those who made the Taste of North Bay the resounding success it was:
• Pioneer Technology Corporation (PTC)

In addition to the great support above, ACA had too many volunteers involved to list here but two that need mentioning for doing the heavy lifting are Jeanette Moore and Shannon Pressley.
This successful fundraiser will lead the way to others throughout the year. If you would like to sponsor a fundraiser to help the Air Commando Association, please contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea.
