7th Annual Ugly Duck Derby Tomorrow – Buy a Duck, Win a Truck!

(BEDFORD) There’s still time to buy your ducks for the 7th Annual Ugly Duck Derby and Belly Buster Contest happening tomorrow, May 18th, at the John Lowery Municipal Pool from noon until 1:30 pm.


The goal is to sell out of ducks and bring in more than $40,000 this year. The Ugly Duck Derby is a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County and will help with the many programs, facilities, and operations of club including after-school programs in Bedford, Mitchell, and Needmore.
Ducks are $5 each or five for $20. A flock of 13 is available for $50. There’s also a special to get 30 ducks for $100. Ducks will be sold until tomorrow at 11:50 am, or until they’re sold out. You can purchase your ducks starting at 10:00 am tomorrow at the pool, or by stopping at Bedford Ford, Dr. Sowders Office, or the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County. You can also purchase them online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com//event/4078228
Admission is free. Those attending can purchase a meal of a hamburger and coke for $5.
VIP seating for the event is also available. Receive 30 ducks, a front row seat, and plate meals for 8 people for $200.
“The prize list for the fundraiser has created a lot of excitement, with the “Buy a Duck, Win a Truck” promotion according to Timber Browning, Resource Development and Marketing Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence County. “We are hoping to sell out of ducks this year, and if sales continue the way they are we can do it.”
The first duck to cross the finish line will win a choice between either a two-year lease on a Ford F-150 Super Crew truck or $4,000 thanks to both Bedford Ford and Hoosier Hills Credit Union. The last duck to cross the finish line will win a Fall Break Trip to Florida.
Following the 10,000 duck race, 100 more ducks will venture down the slide at Thornton Pool. Those ducks will be selling for $100 each. In that race, the first duck to cross the finish line will win $2,500, second place is $500, and third place $100.
