Sabal Trust Sponsoring 208 Seconds: A Lifetime of Lessons

January 3, 2017

Captain Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger was flying a US Airways jet out of New York’s LaGuardia Airport on a cold day in January 2009 when a bird strike caused the failure of both engines. All 155 souls on board were rescued after Sully and his crew safely guided the aircraft to an emergency water landing in the Hudson River. Sully’s skill, determination and ability to keep calm under pressure cemented his position as one of the great American heroes of our time.

Eight years to the day, January 15, Captain Sully will be doing a special presentation at The Mahaffey in Tampa, FL. His presentation will remind the audience that conflict, strife, and tragedy are unavoidable but surmountable. Life is always worth fighting for and everything in life can be overcome.

Sabal Trust Company is proud to be a sponsor of this event. Bryant Jones, President of Sabal Trust, said “It’s not every day that a bona-fide American hero comes to your hometown. Learning from his experiences and how he handled his moment of truth can inspire our community when we face our own individual and collective moments of truth in our life. To that end, supporting his visit and The Mahaffey Theater is an honor for Sabal Trust.”

Giving back to the community by showing support for Captain Sullenberger is encouragement for all of us to be the best we can be as we continue to elevate Tampa!
