Aerospace Executives donate 58 gifts for Toys for Tots
during 2014 Holiday Networking Party
Over 75 guests from leading aerospace and advanced manufacturing companies donated an impressive assortment of aerospace themed toys to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program during PNAA’s Annual Holiday Party on Dec 4 in Seattle.
58 toys including marshmallow rocket launchers, toy helicopters and gliders, astronaut action figures, Nerf rockets and even a few Barbie pilots were donated to ensure that children around the Puget Sound experience a little holiday cheer.
“PNAA is proud to do its part to ensure that kids in the Pacific Northwest experience the magic of the holidays. Our members go above and beyond sharing holiday cheer and this year was no exception. There will be lots of aerospace toys under trees this year. We are grateful for the Marines and the great Toys for Tots Program and are proud of our members for making the holidays brighter for others,” said PNAA Executive Director Bob Uptagrafft.
Caricaturist Vincent Yee provided amusing, holiday portraits to party goers. “Vincent’s caricatures brought a festive and humorous element to our holiday party,” said PNAA’s Chief Operating Officer Melanie Jordan. “Every visitor to the artist was smiling as he worked his magic, and walked out with a great conversation piece.”
Mary Kaye Bredeson, Center of Excellence for Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing was pleased with her caricature. "This year's event was made special by the added bonus of a talented artist doing caricatures... We have framed our artwork for our office and it will serve as a remembrance of a fun evening."
