SUN ’n FUN CAMPUS, LAKELAND, FL. – (November 22, 2012) – The SUN ’n FUN staff and Board of Directors have spoken directly with Santa and for the second year in a row, SUN ’n FUN has been added to the Elf Team from the North Pole! Twelve lucky children will find a certificate under the tree this year for an airplane ride on January 11th at SUN ’n FUN.

For any family finding it difficult to put gifts under the Christmas Tree this year, there is an exciting no-cost option. Through December 18th,  parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors or friends can complete a form found on the SUN ’n FUN website .  Nominate a child ages 7-18 by completing a 500-word essay describing the circumstances and provide the reason a child should be selected.

On December 20, 2013, SUN ‘n FUN will announce the names of the 12 children selected and will mail certificates for a celebration to be held (pending weather) on Saturday, January 11, 2014.  Each of the recipients will receive an airplane ride and an Annual Membership to the Florida Air Museum.   Central Florida Aerospace Academy cadets and Lakeland AeroClub members will be on hand to provide mentoring and guided tours of the Florida Air Museum.   SUN ’n FUN is not only an annual event, it is a year-round commitment to the future.  Visit the SUN ’n FUN website to find out more about programs and enrichment opportunities for your children, grandchildren and neighbors.
