Top Prize: Michigan's Top View

 
Posted April 22nd, 2014 @ 9:07am

The Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association is sponsoring a fund-raising raffle with a rare prize: a climb to the top of the Mackinac Bridge.
 
Reportedly the group got permission from the Mackinac Bridge Authority to offer the visit atop one of the towers. From there, it's 552 feet to the water.
 
The nearly 5-mile-long bridge links Michigan's two peninsulas and crosses the Straits of Mackinac, where Lakes Huron and Michigan converge.

Proceeds from the raffle will help the association restore and maintain historic Great Lakes lighthouses. The organization has adopted the St. Helena Island Light Station and the Cheboygan River Front Range Light.
 
Tickets are $5 dollars each or five for $20. The drawing is scheduled for July 31.
