On a beautiful Saturday in October, employees from around the country gathered in St. Louis to celebrate GoJet’s 10th anniversary. The family-friendly party offered something for everyone, including food, music, face painting, pumpkin decorating, a balloon artist and inflatables. GoJet employees and their families had a blast enjoying the wonderful weather and camaraderie–even our COO, Terry Basham, was spotted on the inflatables (see if you can spot him in the below photos!).
The event culminated with a check presentation to the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation, a 501(c) non-profit raising funds to erect a memorial monument to Missouri servicemen and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The organization was founded by Chris Andrews, the mother of Sergeant Amanda Pinson, a servicewoman killed in action in 2006. Sergeant Pinson is the niece of St. Louis employee Sandy Campbell. Sandy and Chris were both on hand to accept GoJet’s $5,000 donation.
The party in St. Louis was the last of the festivities commemorating GoJet’s 10 year anniversary–in the weeks prior, the leadership team had a great time celebrating with crews in RDU, ORD, LGA and DEN. Here’s to the next 10 years!
