Benefit Dinner for Jack Dillman


There are few people in the world that have spent as much time on the water as Captain Jack Dillman.  Captain Jack has been a staple of the Harrisburg/Millersburg region for decades, and was instrumental in both the running of the Millersburg Ferry and the Pride of the Susquehanna riverboat.  Although Jack is technically retired from active captaining, he still spends many days each summer training the crew of the Pride of the Susquehanna on navigating the Harrisburg waterways.

Jack and his wife have enjoyed a blessed life, but mounting medical bills have made life difficult in recent months.  This cruise is being held to honor Jack Dillman and his legacy, and is open to friends, family, and all lovers of the river.  All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Dillman family to help cover their expenses.


6:00pm – 8:00pm

The riverboat leaves promptly on time, so we recommend that you arrive half an hour early to board.


Tickets are $49.50, which includes the 2-hour cruise and dinner.  All proceeds from this event will benefit the Dillman family.

Advance reservations are required for this event.
