The 2008 Combined Federal Campaign is scheduled to kick off here Oct. 4. 

This year's theme will be "Every One of Us Can Be a Star in Someone's Life," said 2nd Lt. Brian Wiscombe, wing CFC coordinator. 

The kick off breakfast was Sept. 10 at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for the group coordinators, key workers and all involved in driving this year's campaign. 

Lieutenant Wiscombe said the goal for this year is 100 percent contact and increased participation. Last year's campaign totaled $58,600. The average individual contribution was $275. 

Members will have a choice of hundreds of charities from which to choose, including the Jimmy Jet Foundation, the Tuskegee Airmen and Wright Flight, said Lieutenant Wiscombe. 

This year, the CFC is providing an easy to use alphabetized brochure of charities which can also be found on the CFC website at

There will be posters and a base-wide e-mail to remind people of the CFC. For more information, please contact Lieutenant Wiscombe at 295-6515 or 2nd Lt. Lisa Ortiz at 295-1433.
