The Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation worked with the San Gabriel Valley Radio Control League to accept a collection of items, auction them off at an event, and then donate the money to the AMA Foundation.
The collection of items belonged to John Richard Polk, a member of the San Gabriel Valley Radio Control League. From the auction, the club raised $650 for the AMA Foundation. They used $150 of that to buy a brick in the AMA Walk of Fame in memory of John, and they donated the rest. "I would like to give special recognition to John Richard Polk and his family; Diane Polk, Eden Polk, Paulette Polk, Eric Polk, and Shannon Polk. They were all very kind in wanting to make a donation to the AMA Foundation. I had a great pleasure in dealing with this beautiful family. Thank you very much for your kind donation!" - President of San Gabriel Valley Radio Control League, Gilbert Lucero If you would like to know more about the AMA Walk of Fame Brick Program, you can check out our website HERE
