Golden Harvest is partnering with Wheels Up to provide a grant for 100,000 meals across Golden Harvest’s 25-county area. Wheels Up, a private aviation company, is promoting Meals Up, its hunger relief initiative. The organization will be hosting a breakfast at Daniel Field Thursday morning to thank food bank staff and the National Guard volunteers.
Private jet company Wheels Up is merging with a special purpose acquisition company to go public at a valuation of more than $2 billion — more than twice its 2019 value. The deal, expected to close in the second quarter, will make Wheels Up the first publicly traded standalone private jet company and vaults the seven-year-old start-up past many of the industry’s longtime leaders in the race to become the Uber or AirBnb of private aviation.
