Pilot Club to host scholarship fundraiser
The Pilot Club of the Halifax Area will host a “Cruising Down the River” fashion show and luncheon event Saturday, June 15, at the Halifax River Yacht Club, to raise money for an annual $1,500 scholarship give to a medical student at Daytona State College.
For the past 35 years, the Pilot Club of the Halifax Area has steered its charity work toward children with autism, injured military veterans, seniors with Alzheimer’s and others with mental illness.
Co-chaired by Jean Stelter and Libby Vescovi, the event will also feature raffles and door prizes. Tickets are $25. Table sponsorships are $150.
