at the Bay
Jet Express hosts “Will’s Day at the Bay” to raise money for families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).
Round-trip Jet Express tickets from Port Clinton to Put-in-Bay will be available for a minimum donation of $10.00 from 8AM-11AM (or until 600 tickets are sold). Jet Express will donate 100% of proceeds to Cure SMA and Will’s Playground at DeRivera Park in Put-in-Bay. The tickets must be purchased at the Port Clinton dock and must be used on the designated day.
SMA is a motor neuron disease that affects activities such as crawling, walking, and swallowing. It is relatively common for a “rare disorder,” affecting roughly 1 in 6000 babies; about 1 in 40 people carry the SMA gene. SMA is always fatal in children.
Will’s Day at the Bay is held in memory of the young Will Blumensaadt of Put-in-Bay, who died of SMA just before his first birthday in June 2005. Will’s father, and owner of Jet Express, Todd Blumensaadt said: “This is a really special event for me and the whole Jet Crew. By supporting research on this disease, hopefully we can make a difference for children and families suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.”
Please come out and enjoy a day on Put-in-Bay, while raising funds for this worthy cause. Tickets go fast, so it is advised to arrive early. Together we can help #CureSMA!
We appreciate you supporting this special day that touches our Jet Express family personally. Thank you!
