39 Sqn Charity Auction and Raffle
To mark the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force, personnel at 39 Squadron organised a charity auction and raffle which took place at the Squadron’s RAF 100 celebrations last year.
Many local businesses donated items and experiences ranging from signed sporting goods and electrical items, to supercar rental and helicopter tours.
The auction and raffle combined raised a grand total of $7,500 which was been split between three charities. Monetary donations were made to the USO and RAF Charitable Trust and some much needed outdoor furniture was purchased for a local elementary school.
OC 39 Sqn said “It’s been a great effort by the small team here at Creech AFB.
They raised an outstanding amount of money for some very worthwhile charities, reflecting the Sqn’s commitment to support the needs of the local community here in Nevada as well as traditional service charities back at home”.
