Rubber Duck Race

Recent storms and increased spring run-off made the current condition of the Penticton Channel unsafe for ‘Duck Retrieval’ today. We could not take the chance of any of our volunteers or members being injured or swept-away, so we chose not to do the duck drop. Instead we entered all the sold duck numbers in a bucket and had an ‘old-fashioned’ raffle!
Congratulations to our winners and thank you again to Gateway Casinos and Entertainment (Cascades Casino Penticton), the Penticton Indian Band, all the youth groups who participated in selling tickets and everyone who bought a ticket.
Over $11,000 was donated back into our local communities from this event.

Groups selling tickets this year were:

  • Cawston Kobau Koyotes U18B Girls Fastball
  • Girl Guides Summerland
  • Kelowna Heat U18B Girls Fastball
  • Penticton Minor Lacrosse
