Float the Boat Under the Stars and On the Prairie or Virtually from Home!

For the first time last year, Artist Boat held Float the Boat’s annual auction and kayak raffle online! This way anybody could join safely from home. The auction ran from October 30-November 16, 2020, at noon. At noon on the same day, the winning raffle ticket was also drawn to determine the winner of an 11.8′ Viking Profish GT Kayak, Adriane Arnold!

We are delighted to announce Artist Boat’s last fundraising event, Float the Boat, was moved from a one evening big event to a dinner series from October 30 to November 14, 2020. We met under the stars, on the coastal prairie, at Artist Boat Coastal Heritage Preserve over six dinner events honoring Joe and Becca Jaworski.

Our theme last year was “Under the Stars and On the Prairie.”

The six evenings were designed to keep us all socially distanced and safe, but together, outside. The Mosquito Café and Patty Cakes provided a full meal under a tent with only nine ten tops, which were seated for six guests per table at the preserve. Each event hosted 54 guests and only tables (tickets sold in groups of six) were available for purchase.

A BIG thank you to all of our sponsors from Float the Boat 2020!
