Just after the Independence Day parade at Irons Park
Optimist Club Duck Races
Ready… Set… Quack!
West Branch Optimist Club is selling raffle tickets for the popular annual Duck Race fundraiser – a free fun family event being held Sunday, July 4 after the downtown Independence Day parade. The event will begin at approximately 8 p.m. on the river running through beautiful Irons Park of West Branch – Join the outdoor fun!!!
Hundreds of brightly colored plastic ducks are numbered and dropped/splashed into the river for their annual trek to raise funds to provide scholarships, services, and programs for children in our schools and communities.
Cash prizes of $100, $50, and $25 go to the first three ducks that cross the final finish line, respectively. You say you always come in last? Well….with our race, even the last place duck wins a $25 cash prize!!!
How do you, your family, and friends get a chance at being one of the cash winning ducks, you ask? You contact one of our West Branch Optimist Club fundraising volunteers out in the community, or stop at Culligan of West Branch office at 2254 W. M-55 in West Branch between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m Monday – Friday during these weeks before the big race! Tickets are limited and are only $10 each!!!
Tickets will also be sold July 4 through the Parade in downtown West Branch the evening of the race – July 4. Then it is simple: If your ticket number matches the number on one of the first three ducks – or the last place duck - you win that cash! You do not need to be present to win!!!!
