November 2, 2016 – DEPARTURE TO DISNEY!

INVITATION TO ALL MEDIA

Dreams Take Flight is pleased to invite you to the magical departure of the 22nd Annual “Dream Flight” Wednesday, November 2, 2016, 5:00 am (media call) at the Air Canada Hangar, end of Côte Vertu West, Ville St-Laurent (Québec)

Come and join us as we get ready to take approximately 180 physically, mentally and socially challenged children (between the ages of 6 and 12 years old) on a truly thrilling and enchanting flight! We invite you to witness the tremendous excitement of the preparations surrounding the departure of this magical journey to Walt Disney World, Florida. The flight is scheduled to leave at 6:00 a.m. and will return around midnight – on the same day.   For many of our young passengers, it will change their life forever!

Created in 1989, “Dreams Take Flight” is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from the Air Canada family (Canada and United States), this includes pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and management.  For the 22nd consecutive year, Montreal employees have organized this dream trip for the children, sending them to the magical destination of Walt Disney World, for one incredible day. Every detail is thought of: from clothing, to food, to all the rides, the entertainment – everything is done to ensure an amazing adventure!

Air Canada, our biggest sponsor, donates the aircraft for the event and the employees do the rest. The adventure is funded through various fundraising events, corporate sponsors and donations.

We’d love to have you with us, so you can share this annual real life fairy-tale with your listeners, viewers and readers.  In a world often filled with so many problems,  this is a delightful and charming story,  that will warm the hearts of all who see the faces of these special children – as they head up those steps onto the plane – for a trip of a lifetime!
