Duckie sales start this week

Posted by Dan  Permalink 

July 1 marks the official start of tickets sales for the 2015 Rubber Duckie Race. As you might have already heard by now, the date of the race this year is Sunday, Sept. 13, but there's a lot of other new stuff happening around this year's race. This year's theme is Beach Party Duckies, so get the new collectible ducks now! Here are five things to know about our 27th Annual Rubber Duckie Race.

DuckiePalooza Weekend

Schreiberpalooza is the music festival we've been doing in September for several years. Once we moved the Rubber Duckie Race date to September, it only made sense to put them together. For the first time, we will offer DuckiePalooza Weekend, Sept. 12-13.
So, to summarize:
Rubber Duckie Race + Schreiberpalooza = a great late-summer weekend of fun for all ages.

Schreiber Night at the Barnstormers

This Friday, July 3, will be Schreiber Night at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Join us for the big party we're throwing to mark the start of Duckie ticket sales. Before the game starts, Schreiber kiddoes and their parents can join players on the field for what should be a moving version of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Contact Dan Fink in the Fund Development Office if you're interested. After the game, we'll have a spectacular helicopter drop of 750 rubber ducks onto the stadium outfield, where three kiddie pools will serve as targets. Buy a ticket in the duck drop, and if you're duck lands closest to the mark in the center of one of the pools, you could win one of the three awesome prizes we have lined up: a Weber Spirit grill (retails for $500), a 32-inch Samsung flatscreen TV (retails for $250) or a family fun amusement park package. And remember: Use the 'duck15' promo code when you buy your tickets, and $4 from each ticket sold comes to Schreiber.

New ducks, part 1: Debut of the specialty ducks

For the first time, we will sell tickets for 5,000 blue specialty ducks -- at $20 per ticket -- you will have a chance to win one of 10 premium prizes. So while our traditional race will have the usual array of fun prizes, this specialty duck race offers a chance at a Weber Genesis 330 copper grill (retails $850), Sharp a 43-inch flatscreen (retails for $400) and other great items. So while you're picking out your Quack Packs and your Daffy Dozens, pick up a specialty duck or two, and you could win the TV or the grill.

New ducks, part 2: Out with the old racing ducks, in with the new

After years of bouncing down the Conestoga River, our trusty old racing ducks were showing their age. Thanks to a generous donation from LCBC, we were able to buy 25,000 new ducks -- 20,000 of our traditional racing ducks and 5,000 specialty ducks.

Play Where's the Duckie

on Facebook

Every Monday, we post a photo of one of our Rubber Duckies at a Lancaster County landmark on our Facebook page. So far, he's been spotted at Park City, Long's Park, Clipper Stadium and a bunch of other well-known Lancaster County locations. Keep visiting our Facebook page for the latest Duckie photo, make your guess and tag three friends to get them to guess. Each weekly winner receives four tickets to Schreiberpalooza Sept. 12 and will be entered into a drawing for a $50 restaurant gift card. And please consider making a $9.13 Where's the Duckie donation to Schreiber, and encourage your friends to do the same. Every dollar we raise through the Rubber Duckie Race and all of our special events helps us provide services to nearly 4,000 children, regardless of need or ability to pay.
