Tickets on sale for Rotary Duck Races

Members report record sales of duck tickets for the Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club Duck Races to be held on Saturday, Sept. 15 beginning at 11 a.m. at the Truckee River Regional Park.

Each ticket represents the adoption of a single duck set to race down a fast-moving, rapids-choked race-course. The winner not only brings glory to him- or herself, but a grand prize of $4000 to the person lucky enough to have adopted it.

“The Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club used last year’s proceeds of over $17,000 to support local youth recreation and athletics, school programs, scholarships, drug abuse prevention and the Rotary Angel Network,” commented Club President John Hetz. “Past races have raised nearly $90,000 benefiting many local organizations.”

Sponsor Ducks for $100 and individual racing ducks for $5 or five for $20 may be adopted from any Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club member. Look for them around the community. Call Jim Damiani at 550-9900 or Kathy Bender at 587-4677 for tickets and information.

The Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club is part of Rotary International, an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians, members of more than 29,000 Rotary clubs in 161 countries.
