THE REEDY RIVER DUCK DERBY
May 7@2:30 pm-4:30 pm
The 2022 Duck Derby will be a ‘back-to-normal’ event and an opportunity to see the kinds of projects Reedy River and Rotary International take up in our community on a regular basis. “Our club is excited to bring back this local favorite and get back into the water! We’re especially excited about what the Duck Derby provides in the way of dollars to our local charitable organizations” said Duck Derby PR committee member, Cathy Harry.
Adoptions can be made through at http://ReedyRiverDuckDerby.com for $10 per duck or $30 for five entries.(Quack-Pack) The Rotary Club of the Reedy River Greenville will once again partner with Publix for the grand prize of one year’s worth of groceries. A full list of other prizes may be found on the race website.
“Everyone enjoys Derby Day in Falls Park and the chance to win a prize,” said club president Bobby Brown. The funds raised are a direct infusion into organizations which know the needs of the community and can expertly fill them.”
The Rotary Club of Reedy River Greenville, a service organization of local businessmen and women, holds the Reedy River Duck Derby annually as its primary community service project. This is the 18th annual consecutive year that the group has organized this charitable fundraiser. 100% of the Derby profits go to local charities.
Rotarians traditionally develop community service projects to address many of today’s most critical issues, especially children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. Rotary Club members worldwide work to achieve the key Rotary objective of “Service Above Self.”
