The Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc, Wis. honored yacht builder Burger Boat Company Oct. 3 at its seventh annual Commodore's Ball.

The theme for the event was "The Burger Tradition: Past and Present," celebrating the company, which dates back to 1863. The ball is a major fund-raiser for the museum and includes a raffle as well as silent and live auctions.

The major gifts, donated by Burger, included an exclusive tour of the company's facilities and a private cruise for eight aboard the 1939 48-foot Burger powerboat Angus.
