The Center of Prevention of Abuse's "The Duck Race" Fundraiser
The Duck Race is The Center for Prevention of Abuse’s largest fundraiser. This year will be the 24th Annual Duck Race! On August 26, 2012 approximately 20,000 little yellow rubber ducks will be dropped into the Illinois River, all “racing” to the finish line to win SpecQuackular Prizes! Grand prize is $5000 sponsored by South Side Bank!
There are two easy ways to enter the Duck Race. One, you can stop by the designated location in Pekin on Saturday Aug 18th at Associated Bank from 9am until 1pm and purchase your duck then. Two, you can enter the race online at www.duckrace.com/peoria. When you buy a duck, we enter your name into our Duck Race system and a number will be assigned to each of your ducks in the race. Each duck will have a lucky number attached to the bottom of it!
