We’re really excited about this party. It’s shaping up to be an exceptional night.
AquaAffair: Water, Whiskey and Wine is Saturday, October 12 from 7 to 10pm at Great Lakes Aquarium. We love that it brings people together at night under the sparkling lights in our space. We love that the food and drink samples and live music are positioned throughout the Aquarium to encourage exploration, discovery and mingling.
And oh, about that food and drink! Our generous beverage sponsors Vikre Distillery, Duluth Whiskey Project and Far North Spirits, White Winter Winery, North Shore Winery, Duluth Cider and Ursa Minor will be pouring samples all night. We’ll feature a pop-up Water Bar offering guests sampling flights of tap water from the region. Food vendor sponsors Duluth Grill, Corktown Deli, Blackwoods Catering, Northern Waters Smokehaus and Love Creamery, make some of the best food in the city and they will be showcasing their favorites!
And while you’re sampling and sipping you just might find yourself face-to-face with a real live animal ambassador. So, let’s say you like whiskey and you also really like alligators. Then this party is for you!
AquaAffair is a 21+ event. Tickets are $50 each, $45 for Aquarium members. We priced this event with budget in mind, knowing that while many people would love to come out to support a local non-profit (and enjoy a night out to boot!), not everyone can manage a big ticket gala price tag. Dress is festive/business casual. Dress up or wear what makes you comfortable for an evening out. You can click here to buy tickets.
Oh, one last thing. Our raffle items are crazy good! For $20 per ticket you can choose from five amazing prize packages:
- $1,000 cash sponsored by Johnson-Wilson Constructors
- Downhill skis, goggles and 4 Full Day Lift Tickets courtesy of Continental Ski and Spirit Mountain
- Original 24″ X 30″ Adam Swanson painting
- Stand Up Paddleboard and paddle package courtesy of Marine General
- Lounge chair and side table donated by Loll Furniture
Raffle tickets can be purchased at the Aquarium any time before the event and you do not need to attend AquaAffair to get in on the raffle. Raffle tickets must be purchased with cash or check. We’ll hold the drawing around 9:15pm the night of AquaAffair. However, ticket holders need not be present to win.
