Historical Seaport Launches Contest
The Team Leaders who submit the greatest number of donations, and the largest donated amount, each win monthly prizes, including a selection from the online Seaport Store or free sailing opportunities aboard Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain. All monthly prize winners will be automatically entered into the grand prize drawing, which will take place on February 21, 2012 at a Historical Seaport board meeting.
As an interim goal, Float the Fleet will focus on raising $168,000 to help fund a Lady Washington frame and planking restoration project that the Seaport plans to complete by the fall of 2012. Although previously approved for funding though a competitive Washington State Heritage Capital Projects grant program, the project was cut from the State budget due to Washington State’s current financial difficulties.
