Annual 4th of July Duck Race moves to August; event remains at Rob Fleming in The Woodlands
THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Many local residents in Montgomery County have heard about the Annual Duck Race with cute rubber ducks that float down a lazy river pool to win prizes for their “adopted” parents.
After 10 years of the annual event on the 4th of July, Crisis Assistance Center has moved the event to Saturday, August 25 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
The public is encouraged to attend the 2018 11th Annual Charity Duck Race at the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center at Creekside Forest Drive. This free family friendly event (it’s rubber ducks!) is a thrill to watch.
The Crisis Assistance Center will launch 5,000 rubber ducks from the top of the slide and into the pool.. The crowd watches the ducks float through the pool to the finish line where someone will win the Grand Prize of a 7 Day Carnival Cruise for Two! Many other fabulous prizes will be randomly chosen from numbered ducks.
Proceeds from the Duck Race will support Crisis Assistance Center (CAC) programs which provide immediate basic needs assistance with food, clothing, utilities, rent/mortgage payments as well as long term case management to move individuals and families into self-sufficiency. Additionally, CAC offers education classes, homeless care kits, and a summer feeding program for children. CAC was very active in recent disaster recoveries in our community. All the programs promote independence to lead happier lives for our neighbors in need.
“Please join us for a splashing good time at our family friendly event,” said Kathy Rifaat, Director of Development at CAC. “We encourage individuals and businesses to adopt several ducks and be part of a friendly competition to sell the most ducks”.
Ducks can be adopted and the community can be part of an existing team at www.DuckRace.com/TheWoodlands. A single duck is $5, a Quack Pack is $25 for 6 ducks, and a Flock of Ducks can be purchased for $50.
