About YachtVenture

"You don't have to be a kid to love big boats."

The 10th Annual YachtVenture is The Children’s Museum of Wilmington’s signature fundraiser. For one unforgettable evening, 400 friends of the Museum, from a wide range of private and public sector enterprises, will gather to celebrate the successes of the Museum while viewing some of the area’s finest yachts. This year the Museum will be celebrating its 23rd anniversary. It is the perfect coastal showcase of everything that makes our corner of the world so special. Dinner provided by Sawmill Catering Company. Open bar. 21 and up to enter.


One of the many highlights of the evening is the popular silent auction. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit CMoW outreach programs (currently serving 700 public school children), discount admissions for underprivileged families and children, and educational initiatives throughout the year. Generous donations from past years range in value from $100 to $6,500 and include: Custom Children’s Dream Home - Park City Utah Vacation -  7 Nights in Belize - 2 Hour Yacht Cruise - 4 Burner Stainless Steel Gas Grill - UNC Basketball Tickets.

Make sure you don't forget to buy your raffle ticket! Only 200 tickets are sold. One lucky winner will win a unique raffle package.  

It's surely a night you won't want to miss! We look forward to seeing you on the dock.
