The 2nd Annual Morro Bay Rotary Ducky Derby fundraiser happens Saturday, October 8 and duckies are now available. You can sponsor ducks for $10 each by going to www.morrobayrotary.org. Each sucky will have a unique number. The more duckies you sponsor, the better your chances of winning the following prizes:
• $300 for 1st Place Winner
• $200 for 2nd Place Winner
• $100 for 3rd Place Winner
This fun-filled floating Ducky Derby starts at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 8 at the Galley/Hof Brau Restaurant’s parking inlet on the Embarcadero with the finish line at Tidelands Park. The public is invited to view the more than 500 yellow duckies floating in the race along with “Ducky Wranglers” keeping wayward duckies in line. The Central Coast SurviveOars will have their Dragon Boat in the bay along with numerous kayaks, paddleboards and the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol boat to keep the ducks in a row, so to speak.
Winners will be announced promptly at 10:30 a.m. on the stage located directly behind the Morro Bay Maritime Museum during their Family Fun Day that runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Proceeds support the Morro Bay Rotary’s “Help Us Help Others” campaign focused on providing grants to local non-profit organizations who are working to enhance the well-being of the community.
Partners in the project are Central Coast SurviveOars, Morro Bay Maritime Museum, and Eric Endersby and the Harbor Patrol!
