Win a 2017 Mustang GT Convertible and Support Young Eagles Program
July 28, 2017 - If you haven’t bought a ticket yet for the 2017 Young Eagles Raffle, your time is running short. The winner will be drawn at 3 p.m. Sunday at the EAA AirVenture Welcome Center.
Prizes include a Mustang GT convertible and a flight with Young Eagles Chairman Sean D. Tucker or lunch with Miracle on the Hudson First Officer Jeff Skiles, $5,000 and a Lightspeed Zulu 2 headset, and $2,500 and autographed EAA memorabilia.
The Mustang features include 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V-8, six-speed manual transmission, lightning blue paint with ebony black painted aluminum wheels, leather trim seats, voice-activated touch-screen navigation system, and a Shaker Pro 12-speaker audio system.
“EAA’s Young Eagles Raffle is an annual effort to support the Young Eagles program, all while allowing EAA members and nonmembers alike to win a very ‘hot’ Mustang convertible,” said Robin Kasel, manager of EAA’s donor relations. “Only 1,500 tickets are available each year, and we have not yet sold out, until perhaps this year.”
Tickets cost $100 each, and winners need not be present to win.
Kasel said this is the 23rd year of the Young Eagles Raffle and the 25th anniversary of the Young Eagles program, which provides free first flights to young people ages 8-17 to grow participation in recreational aviation. Both Kocourek Ford of Wausau, Wisconsin, and Ford Motor Company continue to support the flagship program that has flown more than 2 million youths.
