Marie Zeffer, one of our previous attendees, brought us shirts that year with the date on them and beautifully embroidered lettering. She passed her PPL checkride at the Academy in 2013! We decided to turn to her about the shirts for the next event and she made Gift a deal that beat everyone else. We have worn our shirts with pride and often (and even washed often) and they still look as great as when new. We save enough that we have given attendees their shirts cost free, but usually have some extras for sale, and those proceeds go directly to Gift. You can also ask Marie to make a special order of our shirt if need a special size (maybe buying one for your copilot/companion?!) We turn to her first for even our non GIFT related embroidery items.
