Hi everyone! Apologies for the delay in planning the second event of the year, but we at Frequent Flyer Giving (FFG) are here to announce that we will be at Denver International Airport on October 7, 2017. This will be a tour of the United Catering Operations facility between 9am and 2pm that day. United built this facility 35 years ago, and has leased it to many vendors since that time. The in-house operation took back over the location in 2015.

Our friends at United are generously providing lunch during the event along with a hands-on tour! We will have a charity auction during the event as well benefiting the United WeCare Employee Relief Fund.

The cost for this event will be $55 per person, which will entirely be a donation to WeCare. All proceeds from this event will be double matched, with the first match going to United WeCare, and the second match going to Tripp Hatch ( https://www.gofundme.com/help-tripp-beat-cancer ).

For those of you who don't know, Tripp is a long time bartender in IAH, who served faithfully for many years at the Continental President's Club, later the United Clubs, and now currently is at the AMEX Centurion Lounge. He is getting treatment for cancer while still working. So in response for his many years of service, we are going to SURPRISE him with a donation to help cover the cost of his care. Please do your part and do not let him or his wife know before we are able to present him a check at IAH.

Registration is up at http://www.ffgiving.org/events/2017-10-DEN.php

Please wear anti-skid shoes (rubber soles) for this event. No open toed footwear, including sandals, is allowed. Suggest bringing a heavy jacket, as you will be in a cooler (35 to 40 degrees) for more than 30 minutes at a time.

I hadn't known that Tripp was ill. I'm not able to attend the event, but can I make a donation and still have it be double matched?
