Update on Event - August 11, 2020

  • Sadly, we CANNOT have our Big Splashers watch the drawing in-person.

  • You CAN still get Big Splash & 50/50 tickets!

  • We CAN still hold the drawing and give away some fabulous prizes!!!

  • We CANNOT hold the Friday Night Bash Before the Splash or have a drive-in event in the parking lot of the museum due to restrictions set forth by the State and Erie County Health Department.

  • We CAN hold the drawing virtually this year. You can find the live drawing on our Facebook.

  • Click here for our revised Prize Schedule.

  • We HAVE five awesome 50/50 drawings!! Tickets may only be purchased at the Maritime Museum. 50/50 prizes are now up over $2,000.​

  • With the exception of the Shores & Islands Getaway package, we are planning on drawing for all of the prizes listed on your ticket for Aug 15, but at an increased pace (see revised prize chart).

  • We will not be able to have any “If Present” doubling of dollars.
  • We will not be able to hold side raffles this year.​


***All winners will be notified and appointments will be made to pick-up the winnings.


The drawing will be recorded to ensure everything continues to be done correctly, following all of the procedures we have had in place for the past 16 years. We will do our best to keep our website and Facebook page updated with winners' names and ticket numbers as we go along.

Based on ticket sales, and at the discretion of the committee, we may add in the two prize drawings we usually do on Friday night into the drawing on Sat., Aug 15.

We know how disappointed many of you are; we are as well. We love seeing you all year-after-year and we appreciate all of your support. We encourage you to have your own personal watch parties and enjoy the live stream.

Thanks for your understanding and support. We plan to keep Big Splash going and hope to have your support in 2021 for the Biggest Splash Raffle ever!!!
