It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s Dale Tadlock of Tadlock Roofing and this year he’s flying for families during the 2nd Annual Spirit of a Child Celebration. This past Giving Tuesday, we set a goal to raise $10,000 in 24 hours for Boys Town North Florida and, staying true to the spirit of a child theme, Dale agreed to match up to $10,000 raised and fly for families– literally, at The Florida Aviation Center (a bucket list item of his).

“I have never flown a plane and can’t think of a better time than now to learn, with the help of the Florida Aviation Center, of course,”Dale Tadlock
The Giving Tuesday partnership between Tadlock Roofing and Boys Town North Florida began in 2017. Tadlock set a goal to raise $10,000 for the non-profit organization in 24 hours on Giving Tuesday and if that goal was met, we’d match up to $10,000, securing $20,000 in total for the organization. To make it more interesting, Dale Tadlock agreed to jump out a plane (with a parachute) to celebrate the accomplishment in 2018.
To put these numbers into perspective, $500 supports one child living on the Boys Town campus for one month, so the total amount collected, including the match, is going to support all 40 children living on-site for one month.
“Boys Town North Florida has a beautiful community of supporters who went above and beyond to ensure our $10,000 matching goal was met. Thank you Tadlock Roofing and our entire Boys Town Family for your commitment to helping the most vulnerable children in our community.”Boys Town North Florida Executive Director, Marcus Lampkin.
