St. Albans Rotary Club's Lucky Ducky Days
The St. Albans Rotary Club would have held its 28th Annual Home and Recreation Expo this year, unfortunately due to COVID-19 we had to postpone and then cancel the event. Not holding this event, our one fundraiser, means that this year we are not able to support the charities and organizations as we typically would have.
In the spirit of community and teamwork, the St. Albans Rotary Club is trying something new to recoup some of the shortfall so that we can continue to support these worthy causes.
Introducing the 2020 Lucky Ducky Days!
Did you know that the St. Albans Rotary Club has returned thousands of dollars to local charities and organizations over the years? Would you like to be a part of that? This year is also the 5th anniversary of the restoration of the Fountain in Taylor Park – so we thought it this would be a fun way to mark the occasion!
The process is simple: you adopt a duck for a fee of $10 each and for every duck you adopt the funds will benefit one (or more) of the many local charities that request funds from Rotary each year. The more duck adoptions sold, the more money our local charities and organizations will raise! Our 2019 Home and Recreation Expo raised over $55,000 for our organizations and we are hoping these Lucky Ducks can help us bring in some funds to help offset the loss of not holding the Expo this year.
That’s not all! The all-volunteer Lucky Duck Committee has solicited financial support from a group of sponsors. You also have the option to sign up to sponsor the event as an individual or as a company – visit the event link for more information. These generous sponsors help us offer fabulous CASH PRIZES in addition to other great prizes that will be raffled off during the event!
All 2,000 lucky ducks will be adopted, numbered, and released into the fountain for a quick swim! A few of them will be randomly pulled from the fountain and our winners will be awarded:
  • 1st Prize - $ 1,000
  • 2nd Prize - $ 500
  • 3rd Prize - $ 250
  • 4th Prize- $ 250
  • 5th – 14th Prizes- $100 (10 prizes)
  • 10 Gift Baskets worth $100 each 
Adopt some ducks, win some bucks, and help us continue to support the many worthy charities and organizations within our community! We are keeping this year’s event as virtual as possible and will be holding the “Lucky Ducky Draw” as a Facebook live event on September 10, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. – be sure to like our Facebook page for updates and more information!
