723 Whiskey Bravo Celebrates National “Be an Angel” Day
August 14, 2013 by SoWal Staff
723 Whiskey Bravo Bistro & Bar owners Skip and Victoria Moore are helping spread the word about a cause close to their hearts by kicking off a fundraising campaign for Angel Flight Soars on National “Be an Angel” Day, Tuesday, August 22.
The day was established by Jayne Howard Feldman in 1993 as reminder to encourage people to perform random acts of kindness and to help those in need.
The Moores are actively involved in the non-profit Angel Flight Soars, whose mission is to connect volunteer pilots with medical patients in need of transportation to treatments not available in their local area. Many do not have the means to get to their treatment or do not have sufficient resources available in urgent situations when immediate travel is required.
723 Whiskey Bravo, appropriately named after the Moore’s Cirrus SR 22 airplane tail number, will offer guests the opportunity to donate by adding to their dining checks for Angel Flight. All monies raised will go directly to Angel Flight Soars. With a $20 donation, donors at the restaurant will also receive one of the Angel Flight mascots, an aviator teddy bear, as a thank you and reminder to “Be an Angel.”
”This is a cause that touches our hearts and one that continues to make a direct impact in the lives of people who really need it, even in this area. People don’t often realize how crucial it is for patients to get to a treatment or a surgery until they’re too far away,” says Victoria. “This is just one small way we can turn our love of flying into something meaningful for others – flying with a purpose.”
“The group of people we work with at Angel Flight is top-notch,” says Skip. “We’ve had people visit the restaurant who have used Angel Flight, are so happy and share their appreciation for such a great organization.”
