WATCH OUT! Get ready…here it comes…look out…DUCK!!!!
The Rotary Club of Haney and the Rotary Club of Meadow Ridge and its major sponsor Maple Ridge Chrysler, are proud to present the Seventh ANNUAL ROTARY DUCK RACE – a lottery to support youth groups in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. Buy your duck for only $10 each and watch it float to victory.
On Sunday, August 13, 2017 a maximum of ten-thousand feisty rubber ducks will be launched into the Alouette River at Maple Ridge Park to vie for the finish line. In addition to other amazing prizes, the Grand prize will be a brand new 2016 Chrysler 200 LX!
Duck “adoption” (selling of tickets for $10 per duck) commenced in mid-March and all proceeds from the event will be used to provide financial support to youth organizations and youth projects in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Any local youth organizations will be considered to take part in the adoption (sales) process and will be eligible for funding grants for their organization. All groups must provide a letter requesting that they be considered for eligibility and must qualify under the Gaming and Licensing Branch rules (click here to go to the rules). Participating groups must agree to use the proceeds in accordance with BC Lottery Regulations.
