Each year, one lucky marathoner is invited to kick off the journey and read those famous opening lines, “Call me Ishmael.” This year, instead of choosing one reader to be our “Ishmael,” we are giving everyone a chance to take to the sea and start us on our voyage. Simply buy a “Call Me Ishmael Raffle Ticket” for a chance to win the coveted spot.
One raffle ticket gets you one chance to be picked as Ishmael. There is no cap on how many tickets you can purchase. The proceeds of this raffle will help the Museum continue to deliver engaging programming and exhibitions.
