~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Samuel Dixon Family Health Centers, Inc. (SDFHC) has announced the 13th Annual Rubber Ducky Festival will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Bridgeport Park in Valencia. Grand prizes for the event include the following cash prizes: 2,500, $1,500 and $500.
The free, family festival kicks off at 11:00 a.m. with a man – made “pond” and raceway! Several race heats will occur throughout the day, with approximately 5,000 rubber ducks racing to compete for the top prizes!
SDFHC, in collaboration with the City of Santa Clarita, will work to recycle the water used during the Rubber Ducky Festival during this time of severe drought. With approximately 1,000 gallons of water being recycled throughout the day for the rubber ducks race heats, the water will then be recycled back to the fields at Bridgeport Park.
All proceeds from this event go toward patient care services at SDFHC, which offers affordable, quality, primary health care for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. SDFHC makes a special effort to serve the under and uninsured. Last year’s event provided over 400 patient visits for the uninsured!
In addition to the rubber duck races, the event includes a food court area, with popular gourmet food trucks, vendors and non-profit community partners, a stage and program filled with local talent and performers, and a “Kid Zone” area, complete with a rock climbing wall, face-painting, air bouncer, games, activities, and an appearance of the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s “Shakey Quakey” house! Raffle prizes will also be available at the event, including prizes from Disneyland, Mb2 Raceway, and Mountasia. Once again, SDFHC is honored to have Supervisor Michael Antonovich return as our Honorary Chairman of the event, with community partner Alan Ferdman stepping into the role of Chairman for the Rubber Ducky Planning Committee.About Samuel Dixon Family Health Centers, Inc.
