Businesses boost eagle festival event

 


The American Bald Eagle Foundation would like to sincerely thank all of the local businesses that generously donated items for the Flight for Freedom Auction at the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival and participated in our “Charm Bracelet Scavenger Hunt.” The hunt was a huge success and our guests enjoyed shopping locally. We would also like to thank Captain’s Choice Motel for its generous donation of a motel room and a vehicle for our speakers and presenters who brought two eagles to be released back to the wild in Haines! Thank you to Alaska Seaplanes and Alaska Airlines for providing the free airfare to transport the eagles and handlers to the festival. A heartfelt thank you to our volunteers who came to help wherever needed! Thank you to all and to the town of Haines once again for making the 19th Annual Festival a success.
