Every Cork Wins! Raffle

Upon arrival at the festival, watch for the Every Cork Wins! raffle ticket sellers. Festival guests have the chance to purchase $40 Every Cork Wins! raffle tickets (as long as tickets last) and are guaranteed to win a prize worth $40 or more (some prizes worth up to $500 in value). The raffle prize drawing begins at 3:00 PM and prizes include wine, restaurant certificates, hotel stays, and much more. All profits raised from Every Cork Wins! raffle ticket sales support the Museum’s educational programs for all ages and help us carry out our mission of inspiring the next generation of young explorers.
