Autzen Foot Bridge, Eugene
Join KEZI at The Great Rotary Duck Race at Alton Baker Park on Saturday, October 11, 2014. The day starts with a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser for Mid-Valley Rotary Club at 9am. At 12 Noon the Duck Race Begins! The ducks are dropped at Autzen Foot Bridge. The finish line is the DeFazio Pedestrian and Bike Bridge.
Prizes this year include a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, a $5000 Diamond & Precious Stone Necklace and a $4,400 La Spa’s IBIZA Spa.
Funds raised during this great event support community-based prevention and intervention programs that nurture children and help their parents cope with child rearing. The 13 distinct Rotary Clubs in Lane County combine to create the largest raffle in the state of Oregon and the second largest duck race in the US. Over the past 25 years, more than a million ducks were sold, with more than $5 million going to Lane County nonprofit organizations.
For more information and for locations you can purchase your duck, check out The Great Rotary Duck Race website.
Great Rotary Duck Race Tickets ($5 each or $125 for a book of 25) are on sale now until October 4!
