George Oldziey's campaign to create a Wing Commander music album with a live orchestra is nearing the two week mark. Although the funding drive is almost half way finished and more than 200 Wing Commander fans have contributed, it's currently a bit short of 50% of the goal. No money is paid out to finance the album's production unless a minimum of $35,000 is reached, so it's very important that we hit at least that milestone! Please check out the pledge tiers and contribute what you are able. And don't hesitate to share with your friends. If everyone who read this post today put in $10, we'd be twice as close to the goal!

Thanks to all for helping us get passed the $11,000 threshold! A very SPECIAL thanks to the lovely lady who got us over that hump; my amazing 95 year old mother-in-law Lorraine Stern! Thanks LOLO!
As for all you young whippersnappers! Please help spread the word! We have 17 days to go to meet our base level of $35,000. We can do it!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
