We are excited to announce this year’s Lucky Duck Race Fundraiser, a fun and easy way to support the programming and work of OCY. How it works: Buy a lucky Duck ticket, get $15 dollars off your Masanutten WaterPark general admission and a chance to win huge prizes, including a chance at $25,000!! Each ticket you purchase corresponds with a rubber Lucky Duck that will be sent down the Lazy River at Masanutten WaterPark. The first three Lucky Ducks to cross the finish line win great prizes. Bring the family the day of the event to enjoy your WaterPark discount, but there is no need to be present to win.
Get your tickets soon!!! To purchase a ticket or to volunteer to sell tickets contact Jennifer Rea at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-568-2559.
$5 for a Duck $12 for a family of 3 $24 for a flock of 6
1st and 2nd place ducks: 3 day/ 2 Night Stay at Masanutten Resort plus WaterPark tickets for 4, OR $500 cash.
3rd place duck:: $250 cash
And a chance at $25,000! The first ten ducks that cross the finish line will be entered into an automated online system to match a preselected duck number and win $25,000. A $25,000 winner is not guaranteed.
By purchasing a lucky duck ticket, you are supporting important programs like:
The Reading Road Show – Gus Bus: a mobile literacy program and bus that provides an opportunity for children and their families to share story time, participate in a book exchange program, and build literacy skills in low-income communities.
The Migrant Education Program: supports and provides supplemental educational opportunities and social services for highly mobile migrant children.
Teen Pregnancy Prevention: Provides positive youth development in middle and high schools in Harrisonburg, Page and Rockingham to prevent risky behaviors amongst our community’s youth.
Harrisonburg/Rockingham Youth Council: A youth-led community service group that empowers area youth to make healthy decisions and create a difference in their community.
OCY’s 6th Annual Handbag Designer Bingo was a great success this year! Over 150 supporters and community members came out to have fun and play Bingo in support of the OCY! With your help, we raised over $6,000 for our local youth programs including the Reading Road Show-Gus Bus, Teen Pregnancy Prevention, Youth Council, Youth Suicide Prevention, Migrant Education, and Smart Beginnings. With your participation we are able to increase childhood literacy, build strong youth leaders, and create needed statistics and analysis of youth issues in the area. The funds assist in preventing teen pregnancy, ensure migrant children have access to a good education, and increase the capacity of youth workers in preventing youth suicide. Bingo is one of our two big fundraising events of the year (the other being the Lucky Duck Race in the Spring) and the funds raised GREATLY enable our innovative programs to do new and exciting things. Thank you to all of the sponsors and participants! We hope to have an even bigger turn out next year and of course an array of beautiful Designer Handbags! See you next year!
Thank you to our generous sponsors!!
