Every Christmas for 31 years now, children with severe and terminal illnesses have taken off on a Fantasy Flight for the destination every child wants to see around Christmas time: The North Pole.
At the end of the Detroit Metro Airport runway, Santa awaits at his headquarters with open arms and a sack full of presents and goodies. And, at least for a night, Christmas is a little brighter.
Nearly 70 children from six Detroit-area hospitals boarded a Delta jet Friday at the Detroit airport and took off on their “supersonic” flight to a place where dreams come true. Making dreams come true is just what members of the Motown Silver Liners, a group made up of retired airline employees, aim to do every year.
RS&H is one of many organizations that donate to the Fantasy Flight program to help make the annual event possible. This year, RS&H contributed $2,722 to the Detroit event.
