A major airline wants to fly between Modesto and Los Angeles (LAX)! In order to demonstrate that travelers will use the exciting new service, the City of Modesto gathered nonbinding pledges. These pledges from businesses and individuals will be used to show support and future commitment, and to encourage the airline to start flights as soon as possible.
Our goal was to raise $1 million, and we raised $1.5 million! Thanks to all of those who pledged to the campaign. We hope to see you on a flight soon!
In addition to air service pledges, we have chosen Make-A-Wish® Northeastern California and Northern Nevada to benefit from this campaign. Donations made through DestinationLAX will help fund air travel wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions in the greater Modesto area. More than $5,000 was raised through the campaign, and will be used to make the wishes of our community’s children come true.
Your support will help us arrive at our destination . . . LAX!
