Recently, Naples Jet Center was part of an article in The Journal about what it takes to host fund raising events for nonprofits  in an airplane hangar.  An excerpt from “Up, up and away: Nonprofits host fundraising events in jet hangars” by John Osborne.

“I think people enjoy aviation and the facility provides a unique place to hold an event,” Naples Jet Center Vice President Bruce Byerly said of interest in the hangars for everything from black-tie soirees to informal breakfasts. “And we like to be a good neighbor and be there for a good cause whenever we can.”

Still, Byerly added, donating the space for a one-day event in one of the airport’s jet hangars requires many additional days of preparation and work; not only for event organizers but for airport personnel as well.
