“Itʼs the greatest day of the year for me to see these children walk in to the North Pole and watch their eyes light up,” says Zazza. He added, “There is never a dry eye in the building.”
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
Tony Zazza, Host of “Zazza Mornings with Cheree” on 107.1 WA1A (Cumulus Media, Inc., Melbourne, FL) and Founder and President of the Board of Directors for The Zazza Community Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) has teamed up with Elite Airways, 107.1 WA1A & Orlando Melbourne International Airport to launch Jingle Jet™ 2015 to the North Pole on Monday, December 14th, 2015.
Jingle Jet™ aims to help local families who have been met with undue hardships throughout the year. On December 14, the families will board an Elite Airways CRJ Aircraft deemed “Jingle Jet™” for the day. Zazza created and produced the project in Dallas, TX for a number of years and his goal was to have it take flight again upon his arrival to the Space Coast. “Being the new guy in town and asking for an airport and a multi-million dollar jet to make it happen wasn’t a small feat”, Zazza said.
However, Zazza was able to secure Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) and Elite Airways after reaching out and sharing this magical holiday project with them.
“The holidays are a time for giving, and Elite Airways is honored to take families on a magical flight from the Melbourne Airport to the North Pole on Jingle Jet™ flight 107,” said John Pearsall, President, Elite Airways.
Jingle Jet™ will be departing Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) with non-stop service to Santa’s North Pole (SNP). After a quick flight around the skies of the Space Coast, Jingle Jet™ will return to the airport where upon arrival, the families will enter a designated area that has been transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with Santa and Mrs. Claus, face painters, snowmen, balloon artists and more. Each family will also be presented with their own Christmas tree, gifts and holiday trimmings.
The families chosen for this magical journey are nominated by family members and friends who send submissions through the Zazza Community Foundation Website (http://www.ZazzaCommunity.org).
Nominations will open at 6am on Monday, November 16th, 2015 and run through 5pm on Wednesday, November 25th, 2015.
Cumulus Market Manager, Gary Mertins said, “We’re so proud of Tony and his foundation’s work to bring this event to the Melbourne community. His on-going commitment and involvement to do charity work like this with his morning show is one of the reasons we recruited him. We can’t thank the Melbourne Airport and Elite Airways enough for making it happen. This truly is going to be a special holiday experience for the families in need.”
Tony Zazza has been a radio personality for almost 20 years and had a dream to bring his vision to fruition. Tony continues his mission to hold this event and make it a Holiday these families will never forget.
Since Jingle Jetʼs maiden flight in December of 2007 and through other Zazza Community Foundation projects hundreds in need have benefitted from the foundations efforts through community support. “Itʼs the greatest day of the year for me to see these children walk in to the North Pole and watch their eyes light up,” says Zazza. He added, “There is never a dry eye in the building.”
