The Great Helen Duck Race
October 22, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On October 22, 2016 – during the peak weekend of Oktoberfest – Family Promise will launch its most exciting FUN-raising event ever — THE GREAT HELEN DUCK RACE! This is an event you won’t want to miss out on, as we launch 2,000 unsinkable little yellow rubber ducks into the Chattahoochee River in the middle of Helen and watch them race to the finish line at Helen’s City Park. The first duck to cross the finish line will win a $1,000 cash prize for its sponsor. You do not have to be present to win, but how could you miss this? It will quack you up!
Here is how you can help us make this event successful, as well as tons of fun. Family Promise will be selling sponsorships for each and every duck in the race. To sponsor one duck is only $5.00, but a raft of five ducks can be sponsored for only $20.00. Remember – the winner will get $1,000! There will be a total of 2,000 tickets (ducks) sold.
If you are interested in purchasing tickets (ducks), please call the Family Promise Day Center at (706) 865-7725. You can also purchase tickets on Saturday, October 8th and Saturday, October 15th at the Ingles in Cleveland and tickets will be offered on-site in Helen until 4:00 pm the day of the race.
This great family fun event promises to become a fabulous Oktoberfest tradition. If you missed the Helen Octoberfest Parade, check out our float. It was duck-tastic!
Thank you, in advance, for your support! We look forward to seeing you at the race!
