IAF Big Raffle 2021We held the Big Raffle Drawing on Saturday, September 18. Here are the results:
The raffle is sponsored by the Idaho Aviation Foundation (IAF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All net raffle proceeds are donated to organizations that preserve, protect, and maintain backcountry aviation. In 2018, net proceeds were over $14,000. In 2019, net proceeds were over $16,000.
The Big Raffle was not held in 2020, due to the pandemic. We desperately need to raise funds to continue lodge operations as we recover.
Big Creek Lodge re-opened in August 2018 after a five-year rebuilding effort by the IAF and approximately $1.5 million in outlays and donated materials. The results are stunning.
Big Creek Lodge is open 7 days a week for breakfast, served 7:30 - 10 a.m.
No reservations necessary.
