On October 21, 2017 – during the peak weekend of Oktoberfest – Family Promise will launch its most exciting FUN-raising event of the year — 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-site in Helen until 4:00 pm the day of the race.
This great family fun event is quickly becoming a fabulous Oktoberfest tradition. If you missed the Helen Oktoberfest Parade, check out our float. It was duck-tastic!
Thank you, in advance, for your support and the overwhelming support of the Helen business community! We look forward to seeing everyone at the race!
