For those who have always yearned to take a ride on a working river towboat here is your chance!
In support of the Howard Steamboat Museum's annual Wine Tasting-Buffet-Silent Auction on October 5th, American Commercial Lines (ACL) has graciously donated a multi-day trip for two on one of their towboats. Arrangements as to where you board and where you go will be optional and arranged by ACL.
Jeffboat has donated an afternoon (Friday, November 16th) at Churchill Downs in a luxurious 5th floor Jockey Club Suite seating 24 persons with a generous food/beverage allowance.
Attend the Wine Tasting in person OR
telephone your bid anytime (operators are standing by!) to the museum at 812-283-3728. Phone bids will also be accepted the night of the fundraiser at 502-523-6333. Further information about the event (including how to make reservations) is available on the website by clicking on Howard Steamboat Museum Jeffersonville, IN
. The Wine Tasting will be held this year at ACL's office building, just a short distance UPriver from the museum at 1701 East Market Street, in the fifth floor conference room with a terrace overlooking the Ohio!
We are very grateful to Mark Knoy, ACL President and CEO, and to Patrick Sutton, Jeffboat Vice President, for the use of their beautiful building and for these wonderful donations to support the operating fund of the museum.
