The RCAF 2020 Ball organizing committee is in the process of building door prize packages for its 500+ attendees, and we are looking for more goodies to include. Does any aviation author wish to donate a book(s)? Do some aviation artists have pieces of art they could donate? Would an aviation museum like to provide a free membership to their institution? Does anyone else have some eye-catching aviation memorabilia or other ideas that might make a great addition to a door prize package? If you have an idea for a donation, please contact Rachel Lea Heide (, and she will communicate your donation offer to the RCAF 2020 Ball Organizing Committee.
