Flightlinez and Fremont Street Experience to Hold ‘Fremont Street Drive-In, Fly-By’ Fundraiser

March 18, 2011 by  

Flightlinez and the Fremont Street Experience will hold a day-long fundraiser with proceeds from all zipline rides benefitting the Professional Drivers Association and the family of slain cab driver Tesfaye Arze. A.N.L.V. cab driver, Arze, 30, was killed while on duty in the early morning hours on March 4, 2011 in an alleged attempted robbery.

“Cab drivers are such a big part of the lifeline of Las Vegas and sometimes they’re faced with dangerous situations and often those situations end with injury or even death, as in this case. We wanted to honor both Tesfaye and support a group that helps drivers and families in similar situations,” said Flightlinez President Rex Owen.

Flightlinez and Fremont Street Experience are committed to serving the Las Vegas community by hosting charitable fundraisers throughout the year. Most recently, the team donated $15,000 to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.
