One of the largest annual fundraising events for programs benefiting families at Hill Air Force Base will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Hill Aerospace Museum.
The Team Hill Round Up, formerly known as the 388th Spouse's Round Up, is a western-themed silent and live auction, which raises thousands of dollars for Hill AFB Airmen and families.
"Team Hill's Round Up heavily impacts our entire Air Force community, even civilians, and supports numerous programs for the local military community and their families," said Staci Long, Team Hill Round Up committee chairwoman and spouse to 388th Fighter Wing Commander Col. Scott Long.
Proceeds from last year's event went to among others Wolf Creek deployment retreats, Utah Military Family Foundation, Pilot for a Day with Make-A-Wish, Team Hill First Sergeants, Hill Enlisted Spouses Club, Hill Field Elementary School, Hill AFB Chapel, Hill AFB Officer Spouses Club, Airmen Against Drunk Driving, 729th Air Control Squadron Warriors Group and Air Force Sergeants Association.
The event is hosted by a committee of volunteers and continues to be a very popular event for both the base and the community.
