Palmer Lodge #1842 had a member donate a 2006 Harley Davidson Street Glide Motorcycle with only 20 original miles on it to help raise funds in support of this project. They sold all their tickets and raised over $10,000 in support of WWP.
They managed to get Governor Sarah Palin to sit on the bike and had the raffle winner announced on Q99.7 radio station.

The winning ticket was drawn on Labor Day, September 3, 2007 at the Alaska State Fair. The winner of the motorcycle was a Vietnam Veteran named Gene Delgado, Sr., who is a paraplegic and is in a wheelchair. His son is getting ready to deploy to Iraq to become a medic.
