Rent a duck, win $1000, support scouting in western PA

Here’s a fun and funny fundraising event to benefit the Moraine Trails Scoutreach Program: the MedExpress Ducky Derby.

On August 5, we’re racing hundreds of rubber ducks by floating them down Sullivan Run in Butler. The backer of the winning duck will win $1000.

Tickets to rent a duck for the race are $5. You don’t get to keep the ducks you sponsor, but you do get the satisfaction of supporting a worthy cause and being part of a surreal, slow motion aqua race in the middle of a Pennsylvania small town. You know we’ll be taking lots of photos and video.

A little bit about the cause we’re supporting:

The Moraine Trails Scoutreach Program is a collaborative effort between Moraine Trails Council-Boy Scouts of America, Paul Laurence Dunbar Community Center and The Salvation Army. It provides a “Scout Leader” and a “Role Model” for boys who would otherwise not be able to access the Scouting Program for lack of volunteer leadership and financial support. Scoutreach explores creative ways to involve parents who haven’t been involved in the past through a parent/son day at camp.

For tickets, contact me.
