Superior Sinker

The “Superior Sinker” fundraiser is back! Buy your tickets today from a Superior Jaycee!

Guess the date the car will fall through the ice. $5 apiece, 3 for $10 OR 7 for $20 and will continue to sell raffle tickets until March 25th, 2020 or until tickets sell out or until the car goes through the ice whichever comes first. The top prize will be awarded to the person who chooses the correct date. If there are multiple guesses for the correct date, the winners will be picked by random draw. The prize winnings are as follows:

  • 1st ​Place - $1,000
  • 2nd ​Place - $250
  • 3rd​ Place - $100
  • 4th-6th ​Place - $50

Over $1500 in Cash Prizes!

The “Superior Sinker” is a completely clean stripped car – no engine, no transmission, no fluids, no glass – just a car frame we are putting on the ice and letting people guess when it will go through. It was professionally cleaned and stripped thanks to donations from Moon’s Auto Body Superior, WI and will be professionally removed from the ice by Lake City Towing Superior WI minimizing any impacts to the lake and lake shore upon removal.

We would like to offer a special "thank you" to our sponsors: Lake City Towing, Moons Auto Body, Superior Beverages, and the Barkers Island Inn.

Barkers Island Inn is a contest ticket vendor, and tickets can be purchased at their front desk. Tickets are on sale until the Sinker falls through or March 25th! 

    

New activities are added throughout the year, but below is a list of our main events:


Fundraisers:

Gitchee Gumee Brewfest

Started in 1998, this brewfest has grown into the largest brewfest in the Northland.  Held in April at Wessman Arena, this annual event has sold out in the past 5 years.  Participants can sample over 130 different brews from over 33 different brewers.  All profits go back into the community.  Click here to see the Gitchee Gumee Brewfest Website


Community Service Projects:

Jaycees Sandbox Fill  

With the help of local businesses and the City of Superior, every June the Jaycees fill children's sandboxes with fresh clean sand for them to enjoy at no cost.

Adopt-a-Highway  

The Jaycees sponsor a two-mile stretch of Highway 2 between Wentworth and Poplar.  Twice a year we go out and pick up the trash on the sides of the busy highway, followed by pizza and refreshments at Rapids Riverside.


Social Activities

Business After Five  

We co-sponsor a Chamber BAF event each year in December.  A night of socializing and networking while collecting toys to kick off the local Toys for Tots toydrive in Superior.

Dragonboats  

Every August, the Jaycees put together a team to participate in the Lake Superior Dragonboat Festival held by the local Rotary.  We have a great time at the event either under our canopy or paddling in the festival.  In 2011 and 2012, we earned the gold medal in the Bronze Division at the festival.

Progressive Dinners 

We have appetizers at one house, dinner at another, desserts & drinks at another... you get the idea, a lot of fun with fellow Jaycees.

Golf Skills Clinics  

Throughout the summer, we offer golf skills clinics at various times to our members.  Nemadji Golf Course offers the course and instructors to teach driving, pitching and putting.

Salvation Army Bell Ringing

We ring the bells twice a year, once in July and once in December to raise money for the local Salvation Army.

Community Awards  

Every year, the Jaycees present three awards to members of the community at the Chamber's annual dinner.  We present awards for the Boss of the Year, Outstanding Young Superiorite and Humanitarian of the Year.
