Fenton, MI — July 1st, 2019
The Rubber Ducky Regatta on July 4th is a downtown Fenton tradition! As part of your holiday celebration, come down to the river and join in the fun. Once the Freedom Festival Parade ends join the Fenton Rotary Club behind the Fenton Community Center along the banks of the Shiawassee River as they release 2000 rubber ducks!
The winning duck/ticket holder will win “forever bragging rights” and a cool $1000, plus there are prizes for the other top 15 finishes.
How to Enter the Contest
Rubber Ducky tickets sell for a modest donation of $10. Each year the Fenton Rotary Club uses money from their fundraisers, plus local personal and corporate sponsors to assist local families with the construction of handicap ramps to help with accessibility needs.
Purchasing a ticket contributes to this cause and makes for an exciting view of the race. Online entries are accepted at the Rubber Ducky page of the Fenton Rotary Club website.
Corporate and Private Sponsorship Opportunities
Businesses and individuals who want to support the efforts of the Rotary Club can purchase Duck Sponsorships. It’s easy to do. All the details are listed at the bottom of the Rubber Ducky page of the Fenton Rotary Club website.
One local sponsor is the Lasco Real Estate Group. Adam Haffajee, Associate Broker and Director of Strategy for Lasco Real Estate commented on the significance of the event. “We are thrilled to participate with the Fenton Rotary Club and their annual Rubber Ducky Regatta. The assistance they provide to members of our community is a needed and worthy cause we are proud to support. We encourage fellow Fenton business owners to lend their support as well.”
Donations of any amount are gladly accepted and those individuals who receive support from Rotary initiatives will be forever grateful.
