Auction Raises $$ For Honor Flight

Some money was raised over the week­end in Auburn which will now be used to fly vet­er­ans to Wash­ing­ton DC.

A 1964 Chevy Impala SS was put up for bid at Auc­tions Amer­ica on Sun­day. It sold for $26,000, and now that money will be used to help raise funds for Honor Flight North­east Indi­ana.

Honor Flight takes vet­er­ans to Wash­ing­ton D.C. to thank them for their ser­vice. Each plane ride costs about $55,000, mean­ing that the money raised from yesterday’s auc­tion will cover about half of one flight.

Jerry Rath­burn bought the 1964 Chevy Impala SS specif­i­cally to fund send­ing dozens of World War II vets to the cap­i­tal.

The next Honor Flight is Octo­ber 1st, and will be the organization’s 14th Honor Flight.
