Taking Off For A Good Cause: Air Show Donates To Second Harvest

Hobby Park Airshow Takes Off For A Good Cause

WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Call them planes, call them aircrafts, even call them models. But don't call them toys.

Bren Bailey, president of the Hobby Park RC Aircraft Club in Winston-Salem has been flying remote controlled model aircrafts since the 1950's. A group of hobbyists  gathers in Hobby Park regularly to take flight but this Saturday, they're soaring for a good cause.

The club is hosting an air show Saturday to raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank. They're taking the place of the Smith-Reynolds Air Show that was canceled this year for airfield construction.

"As soon as we found out that the regular Winston-Salem air show was not going to happen this year, we moved ours up," Bailey said.

Bailey said because of donations and club funds all of the show's proceeds will go to Second Harvest. 

The air show will feature aerobatic pilots, a raffle and even lunch. Spectators can pay $5 or bring a bag of nonperishable food.
