As the Daniel Island Rotary Ducks are in quarantine, they NEED YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER THIS YEAR! After much discussion and concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that the annual Charleston Duck Race will be a matching fundraiser. This quacky fundraiser takes those funds raised by Sponsors and matches those donations made by others. So instead of donating $10 to this charitable organization, a donation of $20 will be made.
So many people and organizations have been negatively impacted therefore the need is even greater this year. YOUR support for this fundraiser will help people across our community who really need our support this year. There is no doubt this has been a challenging time for most of us and many are wondering what they can do to help those most impacted by this pandemic. This is a 100% volunteer led initiative with all proceeds benefiting local charities. Because of the generosity of individuals like YOU, we are able to help 5 COVID focused charities: ECCO, East Cooper Meals on Wheels, Feed the Need Charleston, Halos and the Humanities Foundation.
Starting on September 1st, donations are being accepted via the Rotary Duck Race website HERE. Those interested in making a greater philanthropic impact can become more involved by becoming a sponsor. There are a variety of affordable sponsorship opportunities available with sponsors receiving recognition in addition to all of the benefits associated with helping charitable causes. Sponsorship opportunities are immediately available and can also be registered through the website at www.charlestonduckrace.com.
We appreciate everyone’s continued support during these unprecedented times. Our primary concern is for the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. Your donation is appreciated and needed more than ever, and we look forward to returning to Smythe Park in June, 2021 for the Race!
