As an adult, his passion for aviation took him from chief pilot to chief executive officer of Ryan Aviation and Ryan International Airlines. On Friday, October 12, 2018, Senior Services is proud to celebrate a pioneer in worldwide aviation who earned his flying wings right here in the air capital!

A Galaxy of Stars 2018
The Roast & Tribute to Ron Ryan
In April 2008 Senior Services along with Spangles’ Rene Steven Brand, KAKE TV’s Susan Peters and Davis-Moore’s Dawson Grimsley embarked on a fresh and entertaining idea for a new fundraising event. In three very short months the very first “A Galaxy of Stars Celebrity Roast of Dawson Grimsley” was organized. Over 400 people were in attendance that first year. Guests left anxiously awaiting the next roast! Since then the roast has expanded to include tributes and has now become the largest fundraising event in Senior Services’ history. Now in our 8th year and our 9th roast/tribute the event has paid homage to some of Wichita’s most prominent people – Todd Tiahrt, Nola Foulston, Dr. Jody Galichia and Jack DeBoer have all been “roasted and toasted” to support the work of Senior Services.
