Treat the Trusses 50/50 Raffle


The Hangar Flight Museum is excited to continue our Treat the Trusses 50/50 Cash Raffle supporting our campaign to repair the original trusses in the BCATP drill hall that the museum calls home.

The winner from the first raffle was ticket #1232 and was drawn at The Hangar Flight Museum on Monday March 22, 2021. This winner won $2500!

Our winner for Part 2, the second raffle, will win a minimum cash prize of $2,000 or up to $5,000. This second raffle will be completed on Saturday April 24, 2021 and the winner will be drawn and announced on Monday April 26, 2021. 

The building that houses the majority of the museum’s collection was built in 1941 as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Program. We think of our building as an important piece of Calgary’s aviation history and are honoured to be located in a historically significant building. 

Maintaining the health of this structure is our current main fundraising goal and project. Our building has been experiencing a seasonal difference in humidity which affects the original wooden truss system that Second World War buildings are so well known for. To regulate the humidity in the building we have installed a new humidity system. There are also a few locations in the ceiling where the trusses need repairs because of the humidity changes. We are pleased to have the City of Calgary's support, as they have donated 75% of the necessary funds to complete this maintenance and upgrades. Our remaining fundraising goal in order to be able to complete these integral projects is $50,000 and we need your help to get there. We have $31,000 left to raise.

Proceeds from the Raise the Roof 50/50 Cash Raffle will support The Hangar Flight Museum’s truss repairs, to be completed in 2021.
