Wings of Hope to Raffle Roy Clark’s Tri-Pacer
Country music legend Roy Clark’s Tri-Pacer.
August 4, 2011 – Humanitarian charity organization Wings of Hope in St. Louis is raffling the 1953 Piper PA 22-135 Tri-Pacer owned by country music legend Roy Clark to raise money to provide urgent medical transport and treatment in North America. Clark donated the plane to the organization, and the lucky winner will also receive a full scholarship for a private pilot certificate plus a Lightspeed Zulu headset. Only 2,000 tickets will be sold at $50 each.
“We are grateful for Roy’s generosity to the people we serve and will put to good use the proceeds from this once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a piece of Americana and gift of flight,” said Doug Clements, Wings of Hope president. More than 90 percent of donations to Wings of Hope are invested directly into the organization’s humanitarian efforts, he added.
The drawing will be held once all 2,000 tickets are sold, according to Wings of Hope. The plane and scholarship are transferable.
Clark has spent hundreds of hours enjoying this personal aircraft and he hopes whoever wins it enjoys it as much, the organization said. More information, including contest rules, is available here.
