Point Cabrillo Raffle

When Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park re-opened in April, enthusiastic visitors returned in record numbers. The response to the Whale Celebration raffle inspired us to combine our annual appeal with an opportunity for you to buy raffle tickets. You can support our maintenance of the historic structures and maybe win a stay at one of our lightkeepers’ houses.

The Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers Association illustrates what a group of dedicated volunteers can accomplish within their mission to manage, protect, restore, interpret, and provide public access to the historic park. Visitors, supporters and guests at the historic houses help us accomplish this mission. Check out the warm and welcoming vacation rental options at www.pointcabrillo.org/rentals

The pandemic was challenging, isolating and sad for so many. The generosity of friends and supporters enabled the Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers Association to replace historic windows and complete interior painting during the closure. Reopening the Park provided safe outdoor experiences. Reopening the museums and exhibits enabled visitors to experience more of the cultural history of Point Cabrillo. 

Please help the PCLK! The challenges of maintaining historic buildings did not stop during the pandemic. Red roofs continued to fade, gravel path developed pits, and the costs of maintenance materials increased.

Every raffle ticket dollar goes directly into maintenance at Point Cabrillo. When you buy a Maintenance Raffle ticket you help us to paint, polish and fill potholes and YOU might just win an irresistible prize.  

Purchasing one $10 ticket buys a paint brush or two (and gives you one chance to win). $50 gives you ten chances and buys a bucket of paint.  Contribute to the gravel path with $100 and receive 25 chances to win; provide an hour gravel spreading for $200 and gain 50 chances to win a prize.

Each purchased ticket helps provide public access and maintain history for future generations.

On behalf of all who love Point Cabrillo Light Station, we thank you.
