Domestic Violence Intervention of Lebanon County will hold a Rubber Duck Derby fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 17, at noon.
One thousand rubber ducks will be up for adoption before the derby, which will be held along the Quittapahilla Creek between 7th and 8th streets in Lebanon.
A rain date for the event is planned for Sept. 24.
“The event was such a success last year, we are excited to be doing it again and thank the City of Lebanon for letting us make it an even bigger event with sponsors,” said DVI executive director LeAnne Burchik in a press release.
Adoption sales support DVI’s work of providing support, sanctuary, and assistance to victims of violences in Lebanon County.
Adoption levels are:
- Lone Duck (1) $5
- Quack Pack (5) $20
- Ducks in a Row (10) $35
- Duckload (15) $50
In-person cash sales will be available on the day of the event starting at 11 a.m., and ducks can be purchased in advance via DVI’s website.
The top three ducks walk away with a cash prize: $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 for third place.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for the event. Burchik can be contacted for more information at (717) 273-7154.
