The museum is proud to have participated in this year's Jingle Jet. For those who don't know, Jingle Jet is a single day event, surprising Brevard families in need a Christmas they'll never forget. Tony Zazza, of 107.1 FM morning show, started this charity through his foundation The Zazza Community Foundation. This year, 10 families were selected who had experienced tremendous challenges, either with health, finances, or other difficult circumstances. This is the 10th year of the event, growing and improving each year.

The event was held today at the Melbourne Airport, where families are put on a plane, flown for 30-40 minutes to the "North Pole" and come back to a tree of their own, with gifts based of what the kids and families had wished for in advance. Gifts were from across the board and many were provided by local businesses.

The AMCM's role was to grant the wish to 10-year-old Zion. A huge car nut, he asked to get his photos taken in an exotic car. Luckily, we have some exotic cars and brought over the collection's Ferrari California for him to try out. He got his chance in the driver's seat and even got a very brief ride. We look forward to seeing him and his family again for a tour of the museum.

Huge thanks to everyone involved, especially Tony Zazza. This is an amazing event and we were proud to be a small part of it. Thanks as well to the amazing Wassi's Meat Markets for catering, Elite Airways for covering the expenses of the North Pole trip, Hot Rayz Limousines for bringing the families to the event, and many others.
