The Warrington Lions Club will host its second rubber duck race fundraiser at Warrington Day, September 25th, at 5:30pm, in the Neshaminy Creek at Lower Nike Park. Everyone is invited to adopt one or more of the 3,000 ducks that will race for chances to win cash prizes.
Ducks can be adopted for $5 each or five for $20. Tickets can be purchased from members of the Warrington Lions Club or through its website at www.warringtonlions.org. Attendees are welcome to watch the race, but ticket purchasers need not be present to win.
Warrington Lions Club Treasurer and expert duck wrangler Russ Diamond promised unparalleled excitement as three thousand ducks make their way down the creek toward the finish line.
“You could be crowned Warrington’s Lucky Ducky 2021,” Russ said. “Adopt a duck today! Quack!”
Ten cash prizes range from $300 to $25 and the first 10 ducks finishing the race have a chance to win a $10,000 bonus prize. Friends of the Lions can adopt ducks and find race rules at www.warringtonlions.org.
Proceeds from the rubber duck race and other Warrington Lions Club fundraisers benefit a number of local charities supported by the Warrington Lions Club, including the Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Special Equestrians, Tabor Children’s Services, the Ann Silverman Community Health Clinic, and Lions Pride Park.
Lions Pride Park is a joint project of the Warrington Lions Club and Warrington Township. With nearly $2 million in support from the Township, the Warrington Lions Club, and many corporate and individual donors, the intergenerational, fully accessible park was constructed and opened in October 2020 and hundreds of people have been enjoying it every week.
The Warrington Lions Club is a branch of Lions Clubs International – the largest service organization in the world. The Lions have been an important part of the Warrington community since 1941.
All (100%) of the money raised from the public goes to charitable causes, and most of that (80%) stays right in Bucks County. Members of the community are invited to support the local Lions Club by supporting its events, making a gift, and/or becoming a member.
