Patient Airlift Services (PALS) aims to ‘change lives one flight at a time’. At a fund-raiser on Nov. 1, it celebrated its volunteer pilots and friends who help fulfill their lofty mission.

The event, called the Soarin’ Soiree, was held at Westchester County Airport’s Million Air Terminal.

The soiree was chaired by Greenwich residents Christine Howley and Ruthanne Ruzika. The night included a live auction run by actor Billy Baldwin and music courtesy of the Alternate Universe Band.

All event proceeds were dedicated to continuing funding of PALS’ goal of free air transportation for patients who require medical treatment but cannot fly commercially because of cost or medical condition.

“We never charge for the flights we provide — instead we rely on the continued generosity of our volunteer pilots, who donate their time and aircraft to provide free transportation for patients,” said Ms. Ruzika.

“Since 2010, PALS has already arranged over 3,500 charitable flights, and as we continue to grow to meet the needs of our patient community, so does our staff and overhead. This fund-raiser will go a long way in covering these administrative costs.”
