The raffle is sponsored by the Idaho Aviation Foundation (IAF), a non-profit organization. All net raffle proceeds are donated to organizations that preserve, protect, and maintain backcountry aviation. In 2017, net proceeds were over $11,000. In 2018, net proceeds were over $14,000.
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.
