2018 interview with KRQE promoting the benefit auction for Angel Flight.
The mission of Brews and Props began in 2016, and has since devoted its energy to raising money for Angel Flight Angel Flight, providing transportation to people needing non emergency medical treatment- free of charge by removing the barrier to health equity. We believe everyone should have access to the care they need. In a rural state like New Mexico medical treatment can be difficult to reach, if not impossible. Angel Flight has a network of private pilots who will arrange to fly to the nearest airport, pick up the patient, fly them to treatment, and fly them home. There is never a charge.
Many times NM residents choose to not receive life saving treatment because it is too difficult to reach. Each year Brews and Props enlist 50 local artist to paint decorative propellers which are auctioned and raffled to raise money to arrange the flights for the New Mexico pilots.
Your ticket purchase will support our work to deliver health and hope using donated flights to serve children and individuals with medical needs.
