Permission to Come Aboard!

Ever wonder what it's like to navigate the Great Lakes in a working freighter? In search of a unique, once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience? Look no further! Purchase a raffle ticket to win a Great Lakes freighter cruise. It's a trip you can't buy. This rare opportunity is only available to raffle winners. All ticket sales support the Beck Center.

Here is a sample of what a previous winner had to say about this amazing cruise...

“This is a great trip! I won a raffle a few years ago. It is better than an ocean cruise. The accommodations were lovely and the food, we all had to go on a diet when we got home!”

The winner sets sail for the voyage of a lifetime aboard an Interlake Steamship vessel during the 2011 sailing season (June - September).  Up to six passengers (winner + five guests) can be accommodated in three state rooms, each with a private bath. Trips typically last four to six days. Guests will enjoy all meals in the officer's mess. While on board, take a tour of the pilot house and engine room, stroll the deck, enjoy spectacular scenery, and eat like royalty. Meet the hardworking crew and see the latest shipping technologies on the Great Lakes.

Raffle tickets are $150 each. Only 150 tickets will be sold... a 1 in 150 chance of winning!

Tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis. Don't delay! These raffle tickets will sell out quickly. The winning ticket will be drawn on May 15, 2011.
