GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — President George W. Bush is the featured speaker at a fundraiser this week for the West Michigan Aviation Academy.

Organizers say the event in Grand Rapids begins Wednesday afternoon and includes a social reception, dinner and program. The second annual Leaders of Tomorrow Gala takes place at a hangar on the grounds of Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

Bush is expected to speak to a sold-out crowd of more than 850. The event is expected to be closed to media.

The West Michigan Aviation Academy is a tuition-free public charter high school founded by Amway heir and 2006 GOP gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos. The school opened in 2010 and is located on the grounds of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.
