The Lucky Ducky Race for Pace is Back!!

The Lucky Ducky Race for Pace returns for 2023! Here's what you need to know about this exciting annual fundraiser.

It’s time to get excited – the Lucky Ducky Race for Pace is back!

During this 14th annual fundraiser for Pace Center for Girls Manatee, you’ll have the chance to watch as over 30,000 adorable rubber ducks race down the Manatee River to the finish line. The person lucky enough to “adopt” the ducks that cross the line first will win some incredible prizes, so don’t miss your chance to join in on the fun!

This year’s exciting prizes include a 2 year lease on a Jeep sponsored by Firkins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (or $5,000 cash!), Weekly Dinner for TWO at Anna Maria Oyster Bar for a FULL YEAR, an Outfit a Month for a full year from the Teal Turtle Boutique – and more! Over 20 prizes will be awarded!

Adopt Your Duck Today

Adoption season is officially open, and you can participate for as little as $5.00. That’s right! A single “Lonely Duck” costs just five bucks – but rumor has it that ducks travel faster in packs. Increase your chances of winning by purchasing a “Quack Pack” of 5 ducks for $20 or a “Flock” of 30 ducks for $100.

While this might seem like all fun and games, it’s actually more than that. When you adopt a duck, you’re helping a girl. The proceeds help provide Pace’s students with essential school supplies, incentives, counseling, and more.

When you see all the ducks racing down the river, what you’re really seeing is lives changing.

The Very Important Duck (V.I.D) is also back this year! For $350, you’ll receive a Corporate Duck with your logo that you can decorate and enter in the “Best Dressed Duck Competition.” You’ll also receive 100 ducks for the Lucky Ducky Race for Pace, which you can keep for yourself or give away to customers, family, or friends!

The Lucky Ducky Race for Pace will be held on May 13th at Caddy’s Bradenton. You’re welcome to come on down and join in on the fun!
