Welcome to Our Chapter
The Minnesota Chapter 99s welcome women from across our state and the surrounding area. We hold quarterly meetings and flyouts many of the other months. We create air markings and conduct aerospace education events. Check out our calendar and join us for an event – we’d love to meet you!
The Minnesota Chapter was chartered July 2, 1949, and is part of the North Central Section of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots. The North Central Section covers the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Support our 99s Endowment Fund by starting at http://www.goodsearch.com or http://goodshop.com and entering Ninety-Nines Endowment Fund for the charity you want to promote before beginning your search or shopping.
Tree of Hope 2020
The 99s have been a proud supporter of the Tree of Hope for 30 years. Sadly, this year’s December 5 event – and December 1 online deadline – will not be the normal in-person event as a result of the pandemic. Please consider supporting the Tree of Hope this year by clicking on this link and donating by choosing one of the available gift card or PayPal options.
Our goal is $65,000 by the online deadline of December 1. The cards will be used to order toys online from the vendors and drop-ship them to the hospitals.
We also need sponsorship to cover the administrative costs. Please consider this option (info available on the campaign page of the website). If you or your employer would be interested in helping out, please share the information. Emily Wishard and Cheryl Daml have been serving on the Tree of Hope committee, meeting virtually bi-weekly, to help organize this year’s drive. We hope to have a successful campaign and make a lot of hospitalized children happy.
Deadline for Chapter Scholarships is December 31, 2020!
Chapter Scholarship nominations go to to Patti Sandusky.
