February Update

Thank you Brad Burgess and Rio alum Sophia Burgess for designing our 2017 Duck Derby logo!

2017 Rio Duck Derby Sponsors Wanted!

Last year’s Duck Derby was a great success – more than doubling our first year’s profits – thanks in part to our sponsors who covered costs. This enabled all ducks sold to be pure profit for supporting Rio school pride and spirit projects and events (biggest recipient: 2016 Seniors – busses for their Grad Night).

Our DD sponsors get great exposure on promotional banners, commemorative T-shirts, social media, and our website. Plus free raffle ducks and T-shirts depending on your sponsorship level! Please check out our tax deductable  Duck Derby Sponsorship packages and email Kelli Wheeler at OneRioAmericano@gmail.com or call 396-5223 to help make the 3rd Annual Rio Duck Derby our best FUNdraiser yet!
