MILFORD, PA – The Pike County Health Fund will hold its first ever Just Ducky Derby on Saturday, August 8 at the American Legion in Milford.
For the uninitiated, the Just Ducky Derby will involve thousands of numbered rubber ducks purchased by the community. The ducks will be launched into the Sawkill Creek at The Muir House and will race to the finish line at the Casa De Fabarno Bridge. The owner of the winning duck will receive a $750 grand prize with $500 and $250 going to the second- and third-place finishers, respectively.
The cost is $5 per duck or $25 for a “six-quack.”
The Just Ducky Derby at the American Legion in Milford will include a live broadcast of the race on big-screen televisions as well as food, face painting, balloon art and more. It’s fun for the whole family!
All proceeds will go to benefit the Pike County Health Fund.
The Pike County Health Fund was created in 2003 to improve the health and well being of uninsured or under-insured Pike County residents by offering an extensive menu of diagnostic screenings and tests at the Milford Health & Wellness Center.
The Pike County Health Fund has expanded its mission by creating additional services such as the Pike County Teen Alcohol and Drug Resource Center and has entered into a vital partnership with Safe Haven Inc., of Pike County. The Pike County Health Fund provides interim healthcare services for victims of domestic violence who reside in a “safe house” environment. All services are provided at Milford Health & Wellness Center.
For any questions or to purchase a duck and/or inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please call Janet Rancati at 570.775.7288. Otherwise, SAVE THE DATE and join us for this unique occasion!
