Tucson-based nonprofit Save the Pets AZ will once again host its Win-A-Flight fundraiser this weekend.

The charity, which aims to save pets at risk of being euthanized in shelters around Tucson, will be giving away a Sunset Airplane ride over Tucson, featuring an experienced pilot and a free bottle of champagne.

Shelter Director Kay Garcia, who is in charge of the fundraiser, calls the event a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for dog and pet lovers.

"It's time to slip the surly bonds of earth and dance the sky on laughter-silvered wings," Garcia quoted poet John Gillespie Magee, Jr. in an email.

Interested? Purchase raffle tickets online at ThePetsAZ.com, with one ticket going for $8, or three for $20.

One winner will be selected this Saturday, May 4, giving one local person the chance to soar amongst the clouds, while supporting animals in-need at the same time.
