Your Hawkeye Trader

Hawkie's Friends Lend A Wing


What We’re About:

The Lend A Wing program was created in the Fall of 2010 by friends and family of the Hawkeye Trader. Our goal was to provide a helping hand to our deployed soldiers and their families to show our appreciation for the sacrifices they make. Find out more about us!

What We’ve Done:

Two weeks before Christmas, 2010, we had raised over $5,200.  One hundred percent of that money was distributed through the Iowa National Guard and the Mid Missouri Family PX to families of American soldiers in need of urgent assistance.

2011 was a great year for Lend A Wing with the establishment of our First Annual Lend A Wing Benefit Golf Tournament!  A great time was had by all and in addition to outside donations, we were able to raise nearly $8,000.

2012 was a little bit of a challenge for the Lend A Wing program.  Our 2nd Annual Lend A Wing Golf Tournament was held on October 6th at the Lancaster Country Club.  We had wind gusts of 25 mph and a high temperature of 37 degrees!  Thanks to our "die hard" golfers and volunteers (some dressed in insulated coverals) we were still able to raise nearly $5,000. 

Joining us for the 2012 campaign were the Davis County, Iowa Girl Scouts.  The troops challenged each other to a "Loose Change Drive" and were able to raise nearly $800.00 for the Lend A Wing project! Troop #24, the 4th grade troop, won the challenge and were treated to a pizza party with Hawkie!

Our 3rd Annual Lend A Wing Golf Tournament was held on October 5, 2013 at the Lancaster Country Club.  We ordered warmer weather for this year and got it.  It was a little chilly but definitely an improvement from last year's weather which was 37 degrees with 25 mph wind gusts!   Everyone had a great time and we raised nearly $5,000 for our veterans.  We still have donations coming in for the 2013 campaign so if you're interested in donating, please call Mary at 641-675-3971.
