2016 Plane Pull

 

Dumas Wesley Community Center held its first Plane Pull Fundraiser on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at Brookley Aeroplex. The event was supported by the Mobile Airport Authority, The City of Mobile and FedEx as well as three Presenting Sponsors: Coastal Courier, Inc., Hargrove Foundation and Keith Air Conditioning, Inc.

14 teams made up of no more than 25 team members were pitted against a FedEx Express aircraft weighing more than 180,000 lbs. Teams competed to see who could pull the aircraft in the fastest amount of time over 12 feet. Family friendly activities throughout the event included: a Kid’s Zone, music, food and an awards ceremony. 

All proceeds from the event benefited The Dumas Wesley Community Center which provides year-round programs for at-risk youth and seniors, transitional housing for families experiencing homelessness, as well as a food pantry and clothing closet.
