Duck Derby 2020
Saturday, August 22, 2020
03:30 PM - 05:00 PM
Its that time of the year again! The Casper Rotary Club Great Duck Derby will be taking place Saturday, August 22nd. There is no Riverfest or in-person event this year, but ducks will still hit the water at 3:30pm and the drawing will be held at 5:00pm. The entire event will be streamed on the Rotary Club of Casper Facebook page and Youtube channel.
How does it work?
Rotary Club owns thousands of rubber ducks, all with unique numbers printed on the bottom. "Adopt" a duck by making a donation in exchange for a ticket. Your ticket # and contact info will be entered into our master database and then using a randomization program, every ticket is assigned a duck number. Using a massive boom, ducks are all released into the river at once. They are then collected at the finish line and winners are determined by matching the winning duck numbers back to the ticket purchaser.
Duck Derby tickets are $20.00 each and can be purchased here, from any local Rotarian, at Hilltop Bank, Altitude Veterinary Hospital, Martinizing Dry Cleaning, or Jonah Bank. Tickets are on sale now through 3:00pm on August 22nd.
Prizes include a $5000 Grand Prize, two $1000 prizes, as well as many other local goodies!
The Platte River Trails Trust, Wyoming Food for Thought, Mimi's House, and Wyoming Foundation for Cancer Care are all beneficiaries of this year's event, and will receive a portion of all the proceeds.
Proceeds from the Duck Derby have been used to fund past projects including Rotary Park at Garden Creek Falls, Crossroads Adventure Playground, support for the Wyoming Rescue Mission, Casper College Board Room, gutter bins/clean river project, the Wyoming Food for Thought greenhouse project, and the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies food packing project.
Current & future projects include Crossroads Adventure Park Phase II (bouldering park, flushable restroom facilities, drinking fountains, and water bottle refill stations), Wyoming Food for Thought (garden/planting beds project), and the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies (food packing project).
