Rubber Duck Drop

The ducks dropped today in Penticton’s Gyro Park. Around 150 people were on hand to watch the ducks drop from the MacVicar Signs bucket truck. This year was a new format for the event, and we definitely learned alot to make next year’s drop better.

Here are the winners!
1st Prize – Rob Cocar, sold by Kelowna U16B Fastball
2nd Prize – Rod Elder, sold by Kelowna U19B Fastball
3rd Prize – Rae Hussell, sold by Summerland U10 Softball

Over $17,000 was raised, benefitting local youth groups and the Pediatric Ward of the Penticton Regional Hospital. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket or attended the drop. And a huge shout out to WestJet and MacVicar Signs!
