Area radio control clubs donate money

SEQUIM — Representatives from area radio control clubs recently donated $3,615 to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC).

The funds were aggregated during the 2017 Radio Air Control Demonstration/Raffle, in association with the 2017 Air Affaire.

They were presented by representatives Bonnie Williams and Ed Velardi of two local Academy of Model Aeronautics clubs, Olympic RC Modelers and Sequim Aeronauts, respectively, according to a news release.

Proceeds support VHOCC’s efforts to provide care for the terminally ill, their caregivers and their families.

The two local AMA clubs will provide RC flying throughout the weekend and 100 percent of all raffle proceeds will again benefit VHOCC.

For more information about the raffle or how to donate, call Williams at 360-460-0555.
