Proceeds will aid children in need of
urgent medical transport and treatment in North America

ST. LOUIS, July 21, 2011.  Wings of Hope, a global humanitarian charity headquartered in St. Louis, was presented with country music legend Roy Clark’s private plane, a four-seat Piper Tri-Pacer to be raffled to help American children with major health issues get to life-saving treatment.
Roy has spent hundreds of hours enjoying this personal aircraft and he hopes the winner of the raffle enjoys it as much. The plane will be raffled with a full scholarship for a private pilot license and a Lightspeed Zulu headset.  Only 2,000 tickets are being sold at $50 each.  More information is online at  The plane and scholarship are transferable.

“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,” says Doug Clements, Wings of Hope President.  In fact, more than 90 percent of donations to Wings of Hope are invested directly into the organization’s humanitarian efforts.
