Grand Prize Details

Grand Prize: 1966 Piper Cherokee 180 (N9328J)

This airplane is going to be hard to beat. Prior owners added just about every speed mod possible: constant speed propeller, Laminar Flow Systems wheel pants, vertical fin and rudder caps, Knots-2-U Flap Hinge Fairings, aileron/stabilator/flap gap seals and wing root fairings.

Engine Overhauled “Zero” Time SMOH performed by Western Skyways.

The exterior was updated with the post-1968 third side windows, new side windows, single piece windshield and a bright clean paint scheme. They also updated the interior upholstery, headliner, carpeting, glareshield, plastic pieces, new seatbelts w/front seat inertial shoulder belts, replaced the fuses with circuit breakers, newer control yokes and custom wood instrument panel.

Wings of Hope avionics technicians and volunteers updated the avionics with all new Garmin equipment: digital attitude indicator and horizontal situation indicators (GI-275s —allows the vacuum system to be removed), 650Xi (allows traffic and weather to be displayed), 345 ADS-B In/Out Transponder, 255 Nav/Com and 345 audio panel.

The winner of our Spring 2024 Raffle will be proud to call this Cherokee 180 their own, and they’ll be the envy of others wherever they fly!

Meet Bryson

Twelve-year-old Bryson has been traveling from Tulsa, OK, to Shriners Children’s St. Louis Hospital since he was 6-months old for leg lengthening surgeries and follow-up appointments. Unfortunately, his family only learned about Wings of Hope in January 2023. Since then, Wings of Hope has been flying Bryson and his mom to Shriners every two-to-four weeks — saving the duo the exhausting 15-hour roundtrip drive. Bryson’s first flight with Wings of Hope was Jan. 26, 2023. To date, we have flown him and his mom 31 times for a total of 7,980 passenger miles. We are so happy Bryson and his family discovered Wings of Hope — and that we can do our part in making traveling to his Shriners’ appointments as hassle-free as possible.

100% of the proceeds from this airplane raffle support our mission
of changing and saving lives through the power of aviation — Thank You!

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

There are many factors that would prevent emails from making it into your inbox, but primarily the culprit is spam and junk mail filters intercepting your mail. Check your spam folder for your ticket number(s).

If you still don’t see them, no problem! Send an email to raffle@wingsofhope.ngo 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 drawing is scheduled for Monday, June 3, 2024. The winning numbers will be posted on Wings of Hope’s Airplane Raffle page after we have made contact with each of the winners. This may take some time, expect to see the winning numbers posted in the afternoon or early evening.

The ticket numbers contain three sets of information, separated by a hyphen:

(Order ID #) – (Raffle Campaign ID) – (Raffle Ticket #)

It is not our intention to make this look confusing. We use this system to prevent duplicate tickets from being issued during high rush ticket sales. 

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.
