Dirigo Marine Learning Center Raffle
Updated September 22, 2019:
Thank you to everyone who participated in our raffle. We raised $1,880 to send teens to sea aboard Harvey Gamage!
With our week-long voyages, our goal isn't only to give students the adventure of a lifetime. We're also hoping to give them the tools they need for personal growth while encouraging them to pursue careers in the maritime industry. We love what we do, and we want future generations to see just how important this work is. We appreciate everyone's support as we continue sail training with teens.
And last but not least, the winner of our raffle is...Chuck Annable! Congratulations, Chuck, and thank you for supporting our efforts this season!
Help send teens to sea aboard Schooner Harvey Gamage!
Our affiliated nonprofit foundation, Dirigo Marine Learning Center (DMLC), will be raffling a 2001 Caillou Canoe & Slick Ryder Trailer to help raise funds to provide scholarships for students to participate in our five-day sailing trips on the New England coast. These voyages of discovery provide students with enhanced leadership skills and life-changing experiences — all from the unique perspective of a Tall Ship.
The winner of the raffle will be determined by random drawing. The drawing will either take place on September 22, 2019 OR when 600 tickets are sold — whichever comes first.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in-person with cash only. Persons under 18 years of age are prohibited from the raffle unless authorized under 17 M.R.S. § 1835-A(4). Tickets can be purchased during the following events/times:
