Eternal gratitude for Beril at American Airlines for making dreams come true! We cannot acknowledge her enough for all the AAmazing things she accomplished for The Non Rev Lounge listeners. Complete access to American Airlines and the hospitality involved❤️ Her teAAm was wonderful and we are so appreciative!! Thank you for the fantastic donations to our raffle, those models can’t be topped as a plum prize for our listeners!

Thank you to Kyle Chang from Clubhouse (download the free app today) and his Aviation Enthusiasts channel. He did a fabulous job as an event coordinator; getting the hotel and rooms together and keeping us on track!  Listen to his channel! I enjoy hanging out on Friday nights there!
 Thank you to the famous @aapilotwife, our good friend, Claudi! She got fun raffle prizes, found great places for our dinners, got ramp tours set up, was in charge of the  tee shirts, brought donuts to Founders Plaza,. She was instrumental in making this event happen! We all love her little goodie bags with the meet up printed on them!
Kelsey our good friend and personal chauffeur! Kelsey is the person who got the majority of our prizes. JSX loves her, and so do we! She was instrumental in the success of the weekend! We needed an extra hand and there she was! She  dogged people  to get us those  prizes! Kelsey also donated her personal collection of airline kids pins !! ❤️ Coffee at Founders Plaza came in clutch !
When I think Non Rev Lounge, I think Kelsey!
