EUGENE, Ore. — It’s time to get your tickets for the 27th annual Great Rotary Duck Race.
People got a sneak peek Thursday at the brand new Jetta at Sheppard Motors on West Seventh Avenue in Eugene. It’s the big prize for the owner of the first duck to cross the finish line.
Tickets are $5 each. You can buy them at Valley River Center or any Bi-Mart or Dari-Mart store.
Organizers hope to raise $500,000 this year to support five organizations that work to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect in Lane County.
“The work is still important. The work is not done. The agencies do a lot of collaborating and working together and we just want to make sure that we fulfill our commitment,” said Diana Bray, Duck Race committee member.
The big drop will happen on Saturday, Oct. 11 at Alton Baker Park.
