    Our latest offering is a beautiful '78 Beechcraft C23 Sundowner with recent paint and interior, complete with a contemporary Garmin avionics suite with ADS-B In/Out and a new annual inspection. And....there are 3 additional prizes!
    Like our prior raffles this directly benefits our Medical Relief and Air Transport Program. Using our own aircraft and volunteer pilots we provide free air transportation services to individuals (usually kids) who need specialized medical care not available to them locally -- and for as long as it takes.

    Tickets go on sale April 1,2019 at 6:00 a.m. Central Time. Our previous raffles have sold out in HOURS so don't miss out! For aircraft and prize details click on http://wingsofhope.ngo/airplane-raffle/ Good luck....and many, many thanks for your continuing support!

    @Ken Pedersen ... the link you provided above 404's on you.... I think because there is www there instead of https://

    The "Buy Tickets" link was still active a couple of minutes ago, but they said they sold 3000 of the 4000 tickets in the first hour.

    Can't be more than a few left now...

    I stayed up late last night to buy tickets before they were all gone and forgot to do it...
    They were all gone when I woke up this morning

    The drawing is supposed to be May 17, 2019 ... I misread that and was looking for it to be today!

    numbers haven't been posted yet. I would assume they would contact the winners first? I haven't heard from them yet. Don't know why they are waiting to contact me.

    I'm sure the winner has the ticket I would have gotten if I hadn't spaced out and forgotten to stay up and get a ticket...

    Well, I have to get off to the airport, so if they're trying to get a hold of me, they'd better do it in the next hour or so or you guys are going to have to wait it out for a bit longer.

    Wish they would just post the numbers rather than trying to be all secretive about it. I've never know a raffle that didn't announce numbers as soon as they were drawn.
