Our Charity Program

The Buzzards have donated to various charitable organizations, as an active service club in our community.

Our official charity program started in 2006 with a suggestion from Dave Bell, to auction a plane he built and give the proceeds to the Children's Hospital.  The club voted on and passed a motion to have an annual event.

We have donated to the Children's Hospital, The Veterans Affairs (VA), Special Olympics Program, Hopelink (DuVall food bank), and Sky Valley Food Bank (Monroe Food Bank).  Over the past Eleven years, we have donated $9,800.
