A once in a lifetime opportunity is being offered in a raffle by the non-profit organization, A Beautiful Me. Every year the Mackinac Bridge Authority chooses 25 non-profit organizations to receive a Mackinac Bridge Tower Tour certificate. The certificate is then used by the non-profit to raise money to support the organization. A Beautiful Me was one of those 25 selected out of 454 who applied.
A Beautiful Me is selling 1,000 tickets to raffle off the trip. Tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100. The drawing of the winning ticket will take place at the organization’s annual fundraiser on November 3rd. A Beautiful Me Board Chair, Kimberly Prisby said the “entire organization is beyond grateful to the Mackinac Bridge Authority for creating this once-in-a-lifetime fundraising opportunity…” Each of the bridges towers stands nearly 550 feet above the straits of Mackinac, and the elevator will take someone only so far. There are 40 different ladders and different passageways to navigate before reaching the top. The winner will be able to pick a date in the next year to take advantage of the unique experience.
