Vintage Boat Raffle

The Rotary Club of Eagle River will be hosting a raffle beginning October 15th for a vintage Carver wood speed boat.

The drawing will take place on Monday, December 7th at 12:30 pm via livestream on our Facebook page.

The 1956 Carver Cadet wood speed boat comes complete with an outboard Evinrude engine and trailer. It was donated to the Club by the Louise Waterman Bailey Estate. Mrs. Bailey was a local resident on Catfish Lake for the past 40 years. Her family owned the first private residence on the Everett Peninsula when they built a home there in 1904.

The boat will be on display in the showroom at Parsons of Eagle River.

Only 300 raffle tickets are being sold at $10 each. Tickets may be purchased at: Anderson Insurance, Grandma’s Toy Box, Eagle Hobby & Craft, Coldwell Banker Mulleady Realtors, and Parsons of Eagle River.

Funds raised by the raffle will be used to support projects right here in the Northwoods community. The Rotary Club of Eagle River has contributed to the Demmer and Walter E. Olson Libraries, the Wounded Warrior Project, the Great Headwaters Trail, ERRA Dome, Three Lakes Center for the Arts, area food pantries and many other worthy projects.
