Mike Butler has been Flying for 30+ years, even when his feet are firmly planted on the ground, his heart and mind are in the sky. Mike regularly fly's off Gacier Point in Yosemite. He has Helped film video of the Yosemite Valley for the History Channel and National Geographic Channel. Mike also has a small hang gliding school in Mariposa Ca., where he helps new pilots learn to get their winds.
On June 10th 2010, Mike had a bad landing after flying off Glacier Point, the tall grass and excessive amount of water in the valley floor made for a less than ideal landing strip. As a result Mike had a crash landing and broke his back in two places.
As a Family and a community we love Mike and love his talent for flying. We will be having a Fundraiser for him on July 24 2010 at the Mariposa Fairgrounds picnic area.
Tickets are avalible from Jan Paige @ 209-966-2264

We will be having a All American lunch of Hotdogs and Hamburgers salad, Beans and Sodas.
We will also have a Raffle with all proceeds from the Event Going to Help Mike pay his bills until he makes a complete recovery.
