The Michigan Wine Industry and the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association Education Foundation have partnered to raise funds for The Michigan Hospitality Industry Relief Fund with the #MichiganWineMonthChallenge. Wineries from across the state have provided exclusive experience packages at their winery.


How Does It Work?
- Participants can purchase virtual tickets to submit an entry into the raffle for the package for $10 each

  • Each $10 spent on a virtual ticket = 1 entry
  • You can submit your entry via the button below and determine how many entries you would like to contribute to each package.
  • The more virtual tickets you submit for a package, the better your odds for the drawing.
