On August 19, 2016, Keystone Aviation’s charter department once again answered the call for the fight against cancer.  For the 7th straight year, the Huntsman Cancer Foundation called upon Keystone Aviation to Accomplish an airlift of golfers from Salt Lake City to Driggs, Idaho for a day of golf at the Huntsman Springs Golf Course.

Each foursome donated $50,000 to attend and all proceeds went to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.   TAC Air SLC donated fuel and line services while Keystone donated pilot services and arranged for owners to donate aircraft.

 

The President & COO of the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, Susan Sheehan, said “Huntsman Cancer Foundation is grateful for the generous, consistent support we have received from Keystone Aviation each year since 2010.  Thanks to Keystone’s steadfast commitment to the fight against cancer, our foundation had been able to foster teamwork by offering gatherings to top industry leaders.  This has allowed us to unite leaders who have the will, passion and financial resources to speed cancer research.  In all, this effort has raised $7 million for cancer research since 2010 – and thanks to Keystone, all those funds fueled cancer research – not airplanes.  Through creativity and entrepreneurial know how, Keystone is literally Changing the DNA of Cancer Care.”
