Update on Event - August 8, 2020



  • We will not be able to hold our Friday Night Bash Before the Splash. We will be selling tickets through our limited-contact, drive-thru near the museum on Fri., Aug 14, 2020, 10 am -8 pm and Sat., Aug 15, 2020, 9am-noon.

  • Due to restrictions set forth by the State of Ohio and Erie County prohibiting the gathering of ten or more people, we will only be able to go virtual this year.

  • We have been instructed by the Erie County Health Department to encourage everyone to watch from home. You can find the live drawing on our Facebook Page. Unfortunately, no one will be allowed to watch the drawing in-person at the museum.

  • With the exception of the Shores & Islands Getaway package, we are planning on drawing for all of the prizes listed on your ticket for Aug 15, but at an increased pace (see revised prize chart).

  • We will not be able to have any “If Present” doubling of dollars.

  • We will not be able to hold side raffles this year.

  • We will not have beer sales and food trucks. Our neighbors, Bait House Brewery will be selling Big Splash Summer Ale! (already available)

  • ​We will hold five awesome 50/50 drawings on Aug 15. Tickets are available and all pots are now valued at over $2,000.


As long as there are no technical difficulties, we will be streaming the drawing via Facebook Live. If you are not following us, please do so at https://www.facebook.com/bigsplashraffle. The drawing will be recorded to ensure everything continues to be done correctly, following all of the procedures we have had in place for the past 16 years. We will do our best to keep our website and Facebook page updated with winners' names and ticket numbers as we go along.

Based on ticket sales, and at the discretion of the committee, we may add in the two prize drawings we usually do on Friday night into the drawing on Sat., Aug 15.

We know how disappointed many of you are; we are as well. We love seeing you all year-after-year and we appreciate all of your support. We encourage you to have your own personal watch parties and enjoy the live stream.

Thanks for your understanding and support. We plan to keep Big Splash going and hope to have your support in 2021 for the Biggest Splash Raffle ever!!!
