Linda Hedberg has been a steadfast leader of the parrot community for a very long time. Former President of ASOPS, the Avicultural Society of Puget Sound. This amazing organization hosted the largest parrot event of the entire Pacific Northwest. She continued her work in support of parrots and groups after the dissolution of the Society including helping Flight Club Foundation at many events. She donated her materials of estate as she had to move to a home care environment that not only helped our EPIC SALE but also the most valued Auction Item of Seattle Parrot Expo, a rare, gold and jeweled parrot pin. We cannot thank her enough and will continue to visit her with her birds, Kiwi, Chico and Sprite wherever she goes!
HARI has been a great supporter of Seattle Parrot Expo for many years! This year has been so difficult for many of our food sponsors as often they travel to the myriads of programs for parrots across the United Sates. Despite the pandemic, HARI foods has donated to many organizations to help parrots. Their amazing donation of food and supplies to Seattle Parrot Expo is yet another demonstration of their dedication to the betterment of parrot care. We wish they could be here say hi at the Expo, but their spirit will be here at our Auction as we auction off their display table!

We are blown away by their generous contribution of a crate of wine valued at $700 they are not only donating to the auction but paying for the wine to arrive to you!

We cannot thank her enough for her tremendous contribution to Flight Club Foundation!
Ron Jellum is one of our most tremendous friends and helpers of Flight Club Foundation. From dump runs to metal runs to helping the EPIC SALE to picking up some of Linda Hedberg's birds to care for them, this man continues to show us the power of good will. Driving in one third of the Expo's materials in 2021, he deserves this spot for all that he has done for Flight Club Foundation. Thank you, Ron!
