If your not-for-profit group is looking to raise money, the Rotary Clubs of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have an easy way to do so: selling tickets for the 2018 duck race.
“We are looking for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows non-profit youth and senior’s organizations, motivated to raise funds for their projects,” said Ineke Boekhorst, past president Meadowridge Rotary Club.
“This is the eighth year for the Rotary Duck Race and many local groups have already raised in excess of $500,000 total, in the past seven years, for things like member services, equipment, coaching, ice time, you name it.”
Boekhorst said it’s easy to sell Rotary Duck Race tickets, as the community has embraced the annual fundraiser and tickets are in demand.
“This year the top prize is a snazzy little Fiat sports-car, with a $35,000 value, as usual donated by Maple Ridge Chrysler,” Boekhorst added.
Tickets are $10 and for every one a group sells, it receives $9. The other $1 goes to Kidsport.
“The very best return for your effort. We even provide venues for you, to sell your tickets, making it still easier,” Boekhorst said.
Tickets are released March 3, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Arts Centre Theatre in downtown Maple Ridge.
“Come and join us for a coffee and a treat and pick up your tickets at the same time,” Boekhorst said.
“Start selling right away.”
