The National Museum of the Great Lakes is proud to announce the launch of the 2022 Luck of the Lakes, a raffle dedicated to supporting the preservation and education of the history of the Great Lakes. The raffle for this year gives one person the chance to visit the breathtaking sights of the Great Lakes aboard an 11 day American Queen Voyages Splendor of the Great Lakes cruise.
“The Luck of the Lakes Raffle allows us to raise funds and awareness in support of Great Lakes
history while also giving individuals an opportunity to gain once-in-a-lifetime Great Lakes
experiences,” says Kate Fineske, the museum’s Senior Director of Institutional Advancement.
Winners of the raffle will be selected at the annual H2Oh! Gala on September 24th. The Grand Prize winner will receive the 11 day Queen Voyages cruise for two.
