Who is "Quacky" and what is the Lucky Ducky Race for Pace?

The 11th Annual Lucky Ducky Race for Pace, presented by Carl Reynolds Law, is exactly what the name implies... a rubber duck derby benefiting Pace Center for Girls! Quacky is our adorable mascot who can be seen all over Manatee County, encouraging everyone she meets to adopt her adorable ducklings.

Here are the basics:

  • In celebration of Pace Center for Girl’s 30th Anniversary in Manatee County, our goal is to race 30,000+ adorable rubber ducks
  • YOU can adopt one of those ducklings and win a new Jeep (2 year lease or $5,000) sponsored by Firkins Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram if your duck crosses the finish line first... plus other great prizes, including Weekly Dinner for 2 at Anna Maria Oyster Bar for a YEAR!
  • Due to Covid-19, only essential staff and volunteers will attend the race... however, EVERYONE can join in the fun & view the race - it will be live streamed! More details to follow with links and time!
  • Back for 2020: The VID! Want in on the fun? For $350, you'll receive a Corporate Duck with your logo in the VID Race, plus 100 ducks in the Lucky Ducky Race for PACE! Keep those 100 entries for yourself or give them away to customers and friends - your choice.

Be sure to stop by your local Anna Maria Oyster Bar Restaurants, Peach's Restaurants, Sonny's BBQ, Caddy’s Bradenton and starting August 22nd to adopt your ducks! Online adoptions are already open.

Adopt a duck... Help a GIRL!

What it's all about... Finding the Great in Every Girl!

Of course, everybody loves Quacky and she is working hard to bring fun to Manatee County! However, as the primary fundraiser for Pace Center for Girls, the Lucky Ducky Race for Pace is really about changing the lives of girls in Manatee County. Pace values all girls and young women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.
