LOUIS WOMEN WITH WINGS CHAPTER The St. Louis Women With Wings Chapter sponsored a team for the Greater St. Lou- is Business Aviation Associa- tion annual golf tournament to benefit the association's educational fund, along with Wings of Hope. The chapter also participat- ed in the Girl Scout Empow- erment Project with a theme of G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Inno- vator, Risk Taker, and Lead- er). One of the elements of the program is working with women who are in cutting-edge professional fields. Laura Holland O'Brien , Col. Buf Burkel , and Laura Johnson participated as speakers. This year's plane wash may hold the re- cord for the hottest event on record! It was 130 degrees Fahrenheit on the ramp at 1HO. Special thanks to Eve Casella , who is the chapter's expert on plane washes, Lavonne Deck , who is a master negotiator, Rebecca Fisher Emanuel , who shows up every year without fail, and our two new members from Boeing, Anna Vojvoda and Rachel Hor zewski . Last but not least, Buf Burkel and Cathy Bernlin Obregon for all their hard work. Cathy came all the way from Chicago to help for the second year in a row! Way to go ladies! The event raised $900 for the scholarship fund. Special thanks to Creve Coeur Airport and Bob Cameron for use of the airport, Jimmy Johnson for tracking down ladders and tables, and longtime member Jef Edwards for their support. ✈ WWW Chapter members Shelby Stein, Zoe Gnaedinger, and Allison SuƩer.
