Frequently Asked Questions

If you still don’t see them, no problem! Send an email to email@example.com and request to have your ticket numbers re-sent to you. It is important that you include your first and last name, your mailing address, and your email address so that we can properly identify you in the database.
The raffle ticket numbers you receive are your transaction number, followed by the number of tickets you purchased. For example, if you bought one ticket and your number was this:

The cost of a raffle ticket is not deductible as a charitable contribution. The IRS considers a raffle ticket to be a contribution from which you benefit. If you receive a benefit from making a donation, you can only deduct the amount of your donation that is greater than the value of the benefit you receive. The IRS explicitly prohibits deducting the cost of raffle tickets as a charitable contribution.

Our goal is to hold the drawing on May 17, during our annual Volunteer Luncheon. To get the latest information on the raffle, please check back in to the Airplane Raffle page or our Facebook page for updates and announcements.
The short answer is, there aren’t any! Our mechanics are busy prepping the avionics upgrades, and unfortunately we didn’t get to take any pictures of the interior prior to its removal. The photos in the gallery show the avionics as they were before the upgrades.
That’s ok, because we forgot to make the phone number field a required field on the form! Rest assured, we have other ways to contact you – your email address and your mailing address. Also, if you’re a returning ticket buyer, we have your information from previous raffles. If you happen to be the winner, rest assured, we will make sure we contact you! The drawing in on May 17, 2019 so keep an eye out for your email inbox!
