The little yet mighty Cessna 172 has flown a long way to raise money for the Rebuild Big Creek Lodge effort.  Bruce Parker and Bill Miller flew the plane from Georgia to Idaho in June of 2015, and the plane has been a visual reminder of the efforts to rebuild the lodge since then.  Volunteers have flown it and worked at aviation events in Montana and Oregon, plus many places in Idaho!  The initiative is expected to raise over $20,000 after all expenses; a great help to the effort!  We thank all donors and ticket holders for their support and interest in this project.

The Cessna 172 raffle is sponsored by the Idaho Aviation Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.  Proceeds from the raffle have directly supported the “Rebuild Big Creek Lodge” effort.  All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
