The Rotary Club of Daniel Island and other participating Rotary Clubs in the Charleston area will hold the eighth annual Charity Duck Race on Saturday, June 14, 2014, on Daniel Island. Established by the Rotary Club of Daniel Island in 2007, this fundraising event has grown each year since and now includes six other Rotary Clubs in the greater Charleston area: Goose Creek; Johns Island; Mt. Pleasant; North Charleston Breakfast; St. Andrews (West Ashley); and Summerville.
The race is a day of fun with something for everyone! There are games, jump castles, face painters, music, food vendors and more! Bring the whole family and join in the celebration, starting with a paddleboard race from 8 to 9:30 AM.
The proceeds from this event are used to fund Rotary community service programs locally and around the world. Each of the participating Rotary clubs is designating one or more lowcountry charities as named beneficiaries of the duck race. These charities represent a wide selection of local nonprofit organizations focused on health, food and nutrition, housing, children and families, and literacy. Over the past seven years, this event has raised over $750,000 for local beneficiaries and Rotary projects worldwide.
Mark your Calander for June 14, 2014. Festivities begin at 10 AM and the duck drop at 11:30 AM. The first 35 ducks across the finish line win a prize with the first place prize a 2014 Toyota Camry, sponsored by Hendrick Toyota.
