Buffalo Rotary Duck Derby Fundraiser

August 11, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Saturday, August 11th from 11:30a to 4p, join in the fun at Canalside at the Buffalo Rotary Duck Derby Fundraiser.

ADOPT NOW!  The Rotary Club of Buffalo is quackers about ducks! Rubber ducks that is. The Rotary Club will “launch” hundreds of rubber ducks at Buffalo’s Canalside during the Buffalo Rotary DUCK DERBY fundraiser. With your $5 donation to adopt a racing rubber duckie, YOU have the opportunity to cheer on your little quacker racing for the finish line AND help raise money for the community.

Help “Rudy” and his feathered friends raise money for The Buffalo Rotary Foundation, Inc.’s diverse community projects that make Western New York a better place to live. Your “ducky donation” will allow our club to help fund projects large and small. Past grants include Rotary Rink, Willie Hutch Jones Educational & Sports Programs, Literacy Volunteers, Cradle Beach, and Buffalo Police Athletic Association (PAL). Buffalo Rotary’s latest grant for Rotary Reads Kids Club to the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library will provide a whole new life to several public libraries in the City of Buffalo. The Rotary Reads Kids Club area of the libraries will encourage reading, discovery and curiosity in children, supplementing the school experience in Buffalo’s key neighborhoods. Not only will the Rotary Reads Kids Club promote lifelong reading and learning, it will also be a warm, welcoming and safe place for children and families to read, discover and explore together.

Get your ducks in a row for the Buffalo Rotary Duck Derby fundraiser at Canalside in Buffalo on Sunday, August 11, 2019.  Feathered festivities start at 11:30a a and fun family activities will be provided by the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library’s Library on Wheels bookmobile.
