2023 MSP Pilots For Kids WhirlyBall and Bowling
We had a fun event hosting about 40 guests (kids and adults) associated with the Minnesota Children's Home Society and Lutheran Social Services at Twin Cities WhirlyBall in Bloomington, MN on Saturday, 12 AUG from 12-3pm. In addition to having a WhirlyBall court to ourselves for an hour, we also enjoyed bowling on 4 reserved lanes, singing karaoke and eating a ton of pizza! The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves as did the adults of whom several commented how nice it was to have an event like this on the weekend because of how challenging it can be in finding fun group and family activity things to do.
2022 Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole at MSP Airport

Over 65 volunteers including Delta pilots, flight attendants, retirees and others helped make the day an outstanding success. Thank you one and all for bringing the joy and spirit of the holidays to our guests!
2021 Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole at MSP Airport
The 2021 Pilots for Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole was once again held at MSP Airport on 04 DEC 2021 where over 130 kids and families from MN Children's Home and Lutheran Social Services were served. It was a great day all around!
2019 Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole at MSP Airport
On Saturday, 07 December 2019 several volunteers including Delta pilots, flight attendants others helped to make a difference in the lives of foster kids and families from the Minnesota Children’s Home Society and Lutheran Social Services at the 30th Annual Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole held at MSP airport. Over 200 foster kids and families came to MSP and experienced some great food, games and entertainment including appearances by local sports mascots such as Goldy Gopher (MN Gophers), Viktor the Viking (MN Vikings) and T.C. Bear (MN Twins). In addition, there were other fun activities including face painting, beading, a candy fishing booth and hands-on science activities presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota as well as a cryogenics demonstration by the 3M Visiting Wizards. The highlight of the day however was when guests boarded a Delta aircraft for a “flight” to the North Pole that took them on a trip around the airport before arriving back at the gate about 45 minutes later where they then found an area that has been magically transformed into the North Pole and where Santa himself was waiting to greet them. Overall it was a wonderful day that helped not only the guests but also volunteers embrace and get in to the holiday spirit early.
PFK Goes On The Air To Help Call Bingo For Hospitalized Kids (Minneapolis, MN)
In January of 2018, Chris Rossing (Delta Air Lines) on behalf of Pilots For Kids spent part of his day calling Bingo with a character known as “The Dude” in the Star Studio at Children’s Minnesota Hospital and Clinics in Minneapolis, MN. As one of the largest freestanding pediatric health systems in the United States—with two hospitals, 12 primary care clinics and six rehabilitation and nine specialty care sites, Children’s Minnesota boasts its very own in-house TV studio and channel known as Star Studio. Offering programming in studio spaces on campuses in both Minneapolis and St Paul, Children’s own TV channel Star Studio provides positive, memorable experiences for patients and families as an alternative to mainstream and commercial entertainment. Star Studio produces several live, interactive shows that allow patients and families to participate through the telephone in their room or in the actual studio located on each campus. Studio spaces are located on both the Minneapolis and St Paul hospital campuses. Among several shows, Kids Clubhouse is a patient-favorite that features a variety of special guests, and games, and is hosted by “The Dude.” And on this day, Captain Rossing from PFK was the featured guest who got to help call multiple games of Bingo with “The Dude.” In addition to having a great time interacting with participants calling in to the show and in the studio, Captain Rossing brought a plethora of plush airplanes, lego-like airplane building kits and pens with LED lights as prizes to help brighten the day and New Year for some wonderful children on behalf of PFK.
