50th Anniversary Gala Fundraiser

Saturday, June 22, 2024
6:00PM – 11:00PM

Embracing the heyday of steamship travel on the Great Lakes, the Michigan Maritime Museum will be transformed back in time. Gala guests will enjoy a glamorous cruise-like experience with a ballroom, fine dining, live music, dancing, and an open bar featuring classic cocktails from the era.

As year-long sponsors of the museum’s 50th Anniversary, it is our honor to proclaim Gull Lake Marine as Ship Master of the gala! We truly appreciate the head start their support gives us; allowing the chance that this fabulous event will also be a successful fundraiser.
