Miss A Columnist

Lesley Haenny is the Seattle Editor for Miss A. She is an Air Force wife now living in the Seattle area. Prior to living in Seattle, Lesley spent 7 years in Washington, DC, working as a Congressional liaison. She grew up in a small, mountain town in Southern California, sandwiched between an older sister and a younger brother. Her two hard working parents taught her to always go for the clearance rack, bring your lunch everyday, work hard for what you have, and always take the opportunity to travel and play outside. Lesley has been actively involved in various charities such as the Animal Resource Foundation, Komen For the Cure, Prevent Cancer Foundation, American Diabetes Association and the Race for Hope (benefitting the National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure).

The Puget Sound Honor Flight (PSHF) is a non-profit organization, and a member of the Honor Flight Network. Their mission is to transport Western Washington WWII heroes on “One Last Mission” – a trip to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at the memorials built in their honor.  This trip is free to the veteran, and made possible solely through individual donations and corporate support.  No federal funds are allocated to this program. With the hard work and dedication of Honor Flight hubs throughout the US, and their communities, over 117,500 veterans have made this cathartic journey.

PSHF hopes to raise $20,000 at the Merrill Gardens dinner, which will sponsor 20 veterans on a future honor flight.  The evening will include an incredible dinner, entertainment, gifts and raffle prizes!  They are also looking for donated items to be used in a Silent Auction.  If you are interested in donating towards the auction, please contact Lilia Anderson with Merrill Gardens here.  All proceeds from the dinner and auction will go to the Puget Sound Honor Flight.

WHEN: Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 3 – 7 p.m.

Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre
04 Burnett Avenue South
Renton, WA 98057
