About the Event

On Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 6:30 pm, Patient Airlift Services (PALS) will be hosting its annual PALS 2021 Above & Beyond Gala at the Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, NY.

This inspirational evening, which will be our only gala of the year, celebrates our dedicated volunteer pilots, our courageous passengers, the charitable aviation community and our generous sponsors.

The PALS 2021 Above & Beyond Gala includes a cocktail reception, dinner and entertainment. The event raises awareness of our services and funds for the PALS mission. This year PALS presents the Flight of Hope Award to Philip M. Halpern on behalf of the Mancheski Foundation. The Mancheski Foundation has been a major supporter of PALS for more than five years, providing flights for more than 1,500 children in need.

Events of this magnitude would not be possible without businesses, individuals and organizations
like yours. We thank you in advance for your consideration of this most worthy cause.

Virtual Gala

We are also offering a virtual option this year for those who want to join the event but are unable to attend in person.
The PALS Virtual Gala will begin at 7:00 pm on the same night.
