Join us for our annual American Girl Doll Raffle at The Mariners’ Museum and Park! These iconic dolls are a beautiful addition to any playroom. Tickets for either doll can be purchased online or in person. Each doll comes with three outfits, accessories, and two books. All proceeds benefit the Education Department of The Mariners’ Museum and Park.
This doll is connected to our Answering America’s Call: Newport News in World War I exhibition and is based on the women who provided doughnuts, stamps, and stationery to U.S. soldiers during World War I. Women volunteers in Salvation Army huts provided comfort and care to soldiers, and served as many as 9,000 doughnuts a day to the enlisted.
This doll is connected to our Defending the Seas gallery and is based on Rosie the Riveter. The cultural heroine represented all the women who worked in shipyards, factories, and even worked as pilots in World War II. More than 300,000 women served in the U.S. Armed Forces during the war.
Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20
The drawing will be on August 31st, 2018 at 11:00 AM.
