Who does the Duck Derby benefit?

The Duck Derby proceeds benefit Advocates for Children.

Advocates provides services to children and families who have been the victims of abuse and neglect. Because of the generosity of individuals like YOU, we are able to serve over 3,000 children and families each year.

What is the Duck Derby?

It's a really quacky concept. To win the guaranteed Grand Prize of $10,000 cash, all you have to do is adopt a duck. Duck Adoptions range in price from $5-$250. Each duck you adopt will be released into the man-made water raceway at Sam Smith Park for onlookers to watch as they race their way down to the finish line. We will have some special guests catching the winners from the water once they reach the finish.

There will be multiple races and the first crates of ducks from each will be pulled to race in the grand prize race. If your duck is the first one pulled from the grand prize race, you will win the GRAND PRIZE of $10,000!

What is included with a $250 VID package?

You will get 1 duck entered in the VID race that takes place immediately before the main race. The winning VID duck will take home a $1,000 cash prize. Also included with a VID package are 50 ducks entered in the main race with the winner taking home the $10,000 prize!

Where is the Duck Derby?

Sam Smith Park

You read that right! No, there's no river or lake. We've gone a little QUACKY and have decided to create our own water raceway with help from our amazing friends and Corporate Partners at Gerdau Ameristeel! You can expect to see a starting pool and end pool connected together with a winding waterway. This allows event attendees to watch the ducks from start to finish and enjoy the excitement as their ducks race along to hopefully win the $10,000 prize!
