St. John Properties hosts Blue Haven FUNdraiser.

 

‘We want to serve them in some way like they have served us,” event organizer John Pilmer said.  Blue Haven was started by Nannette Wride, the widow of Sgt. Cory Wride who was killed in 2014.Shortly after, Wride had an idea. She started creating baskets of the things that helped her most, things people had sent her. She includes her favorite comforting music, books on death and blankets. Every basket is centered on the family’s specific needs. She would fly and take the baskets and attend funerals. After doing several baskets, funding it all on her own, she started Blue Haven.

U.S. officials have long worried that weaponized drones could be used to hit “soft targets” like sporting events and political rallies, as allegedly happened in Venezuela earlier this month. Fortem Tech, a Utah-based company, however, gave NBC News an exclusive look at a potential answer to killer drones.  Backed by Boeing and other investors, the airspace security company Fortem Technologies is developing a “good” drone called the DroneHunter, and has made sales to the U.S. Department of Defense, major airports and sports stadiums.
