Last weekend’s two-day radio-controlled air show in Liberty County raised more than $1,000 to support Bryan County-based Family Promise.

The Blazing Angels RC Squadron donated all proceeds from the club’s annual air show, which took place Saturday and Sunday on Lee Place Road in Walthourville.

Family Promise is working toward beginning its model of transitioning families into stable housing throughout Bryan County. By working with 13 local churches in the north and south of the county to provide hospitality through a local network Family Promise’s program, this model is targeted to begin in the region by Jan. 1.

“We were delighted with the response to last weekend’s amazing event and very grateful to the Blazing Angels RC Squadron. We empower families to regain stability and independence and to break the cycle of dependence on social programs and government assistance, so every cent raised is vital,” said Candice Stewart-Fife, the chairwoman of fund development and public relations for Family Promise of Bryan County.
