One of our goals is to provide value entertainment for our customers by taking them "Back Down Memory Lane" through Old School Soul Concerts. We proudly present the best live Soul Music concerts by of the 1970's and 1980s. Some of the musical artists and bands that have/will perfom at our concerts include: The O'Jays, The Spinners, The SOS Band, The Stylistics, Blue Magic, The Dramatics, The BarKays, The Chilites, The Temptations, Enchantment, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, The Whispers, Cameo, WAR, Keith Sweat, George Clinton, After7, etc.
Our mission is to provide a yearly aviation education camp for kids to introduce them careers in the aviation industry. We will also provide scholarships to kids to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center's Space Camp 6-Day program in the summer months every year. We will also sponsor trips to college campuses to introduce kids to the college environment. The second part of our mission is to go into correctional facilities and mentor to inmates to help them prepare to become productive citizens when they are released back into their communities. We will also help ex offenders by providing educational and job training opportunities.
Our mission is to try and reach children while they are young and help them set goals and provide examples on how to reach those goals before they become at risk and turn to crime. So we want to present them with alternatives to criminal and gang activities.
