About BentStar & BentProp
The BentStar Project is a 501 (c)3 charity and the funding arm of the BentProp Project. BentProp team members, real life Indiana Jones adventurers, travel to the islands of Palau searching for World War II POW/MIAs. In the process of finding and identifying lost planes the team solves the mystery of the airmen who went missing with their aircraft. The annual expeditions have been responsible for identifying dozens of missing US aircraft and returning the remains of airmen formerly listed as MIA to their families. The United States lists some 88,000 as Missing in Action from her conflicts around the globe. Over 75,000 of those missing are from the battles of WWII .
Mallory Lewis & Lamb Chop did a fantastic job of keeping all entertained and the auction lively!!!!
Patrick Henry Hughes, WOW, what a voice and performer!!

Event Details View and print the flyer for this event
When we as a nation send our forces into harms way it is with the promise of bringing them home. No matter what, no matter how long that takes. Currently the US lists 88,000 as Missing In Action. The BentStar Project is working to fulfill this the most basic promise of bringing them home. Because it is never too late.
The BentStar Project is a 501(c)3 charity organization. This event will be a chance to mingle with the principles and raise funds for a great cause.
Event Presented by
Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer
"Shari Lewis was a delightful lady. Lamb Chop wasn't so nice. Suddenly, Lamb Chop came out and said, 'Boys, you don't write so well!' ... a piece of cloth was yelling at us. It's not every day you get yelled at by cloth. But we learned that funny people seem to have quirks."
