Boys & Girls Club Duck Derby

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the San Gorgonio Pass will hold its third annual “Quickest Quacker” Duck Derby at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa on Monday, Sept. 10.

 
Last year’s event drew many people from the San Gorgonio Pass area, who came together to cheer on their rubber duckies as they made their way down a man-made river. For the third Duck Derby, the Boys & Girls Clubs has set a goal to sell three times as many ducks and have three times as many guests.
 
The proceeds from this event will provide the necessary resources to support the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs organization: “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as responsible and caring citizens.”
 
More than 700 children count on the Boys & Girls Clubs staff to provide them with enriching programs, academic support and mentoring.
 
The Duck Derby will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Casino Morongo’s Lazy River.
 
Tickets to the event are $50, which includes admission, light dinner and one rubber duck. Event sponsorships also are available.
 
For anyone unable to attend, ducks can be purchased for $5 each. Winners do not have to be present. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places.
