WAOA/Melbourne, FL's Tony Zazza Helps Families In Need

CUMULUS MEDIA Top 40 WAOA (107.1 WA1A)/MELBOURNE, FL, morning show host TONY ZAZZA ("ZAZZA Mornings With CHEREE"), founder and President for THE ZAZZA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION, has teamed up with the station, ELITE AIRWAYS and ORLANDO MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT to launch JINGLE JET 2015 to the NORTH POLE, MONDAY, DECEMBER 14th.
JINGLE JET aims to help local families who have been met with undue hardships throughout the year. On DECEMBER 14th, the families will board an ELITE AIRWAYS CRJ aircraft. ZAZZA first created and produced the project in DALLAS, TX, for a number of years and his goal was to have it take flight again upon his arrival in the SPACE COAST.
“Being the new guy in town and asking for an airport and a multimillion dollar jet to make it happen wasn’t a small feat," said ZAZZA.
JINGLE JET will depart ORLANDO MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (MLB) with non-stop service to SANTA’s NORTH POLE (SNP). After a quick flight around the skies of the SPACE COAST, JINGLE JET will return to the airport where upon arrival, the families will enter a designated area that has been transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with SANTA and Mrs. CLAUS, face painters, snowmen, balloon artists and more. Each family will also be presented with their own CHRISTMAS tree, gifts and holiday trimmings.
The families chosen for this magical journey are nominated by family members and friends who send submissions through the ZAZZA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION website. Nominations opened at 6a (ET) on MONDAY (NOVEMBER 16th) and will run through 5p (ET) on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25th.
Added CUMULUS Market Manager GARY MERTINS: “We’re so proud of TONY and his foundation’s work to bring this event to the MELBOURNE community. His on-going commitment and involvement to do charity work like this with his morning show is one of the reasons we recruited him. We can’t thank the MELBOURNE AIRPORT and ELITE AIRWAYS enough for making it happen. This truly is going to be a special holiday experience for the families in need.”
