2014 Manna Hat – Winner Announced

Posted on: December 1st, 2014 by brent

Congrats to Dena Mathis from Baker… She is the winner of this year’s

Manna Hat Auction.  Winning bid $810.

I’m Brent Lane from the Cat Pak Morning Show at Cat Country 98.7 in Pensacola, FL. The Manna Hat, as it has come to be known, is all authentic autographs… I know because I collected them myself. So, why all this work just to sell the hat? The simple answer is Manna Food Pantriesof Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties needs the help. Cat Country 98.7 (WYCT-FM) is Pensacola’s Community Radio Station. We are family-owned and put community service first.

Manna Food Pantries began serving the hungry on January 3, 1983, then known as Manna Food Bank. Since then Manna have served over half a million people in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida, from Century to Navarre. Manna has given out over 7,000 tons of food to hungry families in our communities. In the last year alone, Manna has served about 32,000 individuals in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties.Manna Food Pantries is a private, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to alleviating hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties of Northwest Florida. Manna is nonsectarian, community focused, volunteer supported and committed to the philosophy, “waste not, want not.” Manna believe’s that every person has a right to live free from hunger and that every person is to be treated with respect and dignity.

This year the need is particularly great. Please know that 100% of the proceeds this auction raises will go to Manna Food Pantries of Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties so that those in need in Pensacola, Pace, Milton and the surrounding areas can continue to be taken care of.

I will send you a signed certificate saying these are 100% Authentic Pics.

Brent flys with the Blue Angels

Posted on: November 1st, 2014 by brent

It was truly the most exhilarating ride of my life.  It gave me an appreciation for the training and precision flying that America’s Navy Fighter Pilots are capable of.  The Blue Angels inspire people all over America to aspire to be a Navy or Marine Pilot.  Maj. Miller took me up in #7 several years back… but I’ve never forgotten the experience and in 45 minutes came to understand that these are some of the best pilots America has to offer.

It wasn’t as scary this year, but it did include a lot of country stars. Jerrod Neimann kicked it off and even Trisha Yearwood got in on the fun.
