Delta Air Lines and Memphis International Airport hosted the annual “Fantasy Flight” to the “North Pole” for patients from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their families Friday, December 15. The trip to the North Pole included Christmas carols, games, and a reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Other special guests included the University of Memphis Tigers Spirit Squad, the Memphis Redbirds’ Rockey the Redbird, Memphis Elite cheerleaders, the Chick-Fil-A Cow, Suzuki Music Makers Orchestra, and the West Tennessee Therapy Dogs.
This marks the 8th year that Delta Air Lines and Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority (MSCAA) employees coordinated this event. The local Transportation Security Administration (TSA) also assists in coordinating the Fantasy Flight, which also receives contributions from airport tenants HMS Host, Gate Gourmet, Lenny’s Subs, and Paradies Lagardère.
“This is an annual event that unites many airport employees and volunteers for a great cause,” said Scott Brockman, MSCAA President and CEO. “The goal is simple: to provide these children with an unforgettable holiday experience.”
