ICAS Foundation Creates Kyle and Amanda Fund
The International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) Foundation has established the “Kyle and Amanda Fund” for Kyle and Amanda Franklin, who were both injured in an accident while performing at Air Fiesta 2011 in Brownsville, Texas, on March 12. The fund is to help ensure that they’re able to focus on the difficult challenges of healing rather than the financial challenges of that process. Every penny donated to this fund will go directly to Amanda and Kyle. “It is our hope that members of the air show community will contribute to this fund as generously as their circumstances allow,” read a letter from the ICAS Foundation Board of Directors announcing the fund.
There are a number of ways to make a donation:
- Make your check or money order payable to ICAS Foundation and mail it to: ICAS Foundation, 750 Miller Drive, Suite F-3, Leesburg, VA 20175. On your check or money order, indicate “Kyle and Amanda Fund” in the memo section.
