Sikorsky Silent Auction Brings in nearly 25k for PALS for Patriot Program


STRATFORD, Conn., Nov. 19, 2018 – Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, presented a check for nearly $25,000 to Patient AirLift Services recently for the organization’s PALS for Patriots program. Audrey Brady, Commercial Systems and Services (CSS) Vice President for Sikorsky, presented Donna Collins, PALS President, with the donation from the company’s annual employee silent auction.

The PALS for Patriots Program serves military servicemen and women who have suffered serious, service-connected injuries. The program transports them to specialized military medical centers and to morale-boosting events.

“Sikorsky is proud to partner with Patient AirLift Services,” said Brady. “Our charter services company, Associated Aircraft Group (AAG), has a longstanding relationship with PALS and donates several helicopter flights per year to the organization, to assist individuals who greatly benefit from transportation provided by the convenience of an S-76® helicopter.”
