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, friends of the Museum, from a wide range of private and public sector enterprises, will gather to celebrate the successes of the Museum. It is the perfect coastal showcase of everything that makes our corner of the world so special. 


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 underserved families and children, and educational initiatives throughout the year. Guests will have a chance to take in the beautiful view from Bradley Creek Marina while enjoying their favorite adult beverage, live music, and company of others, all while supporting The Children's Museum.  Due to COVID-19, we will be implementing proper social distancing protocols and will, therefore, not be offering boat tours or food service. This is an occassion to stop by and show your support for the Museum, which is celebrating its 23rd anniversary this year. 

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 an evening you don't want to miss! We look forward to seeing you on the dock.
