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!
