Ready, Set, Go! 2017 Rio Duck Derby
Sales Sept. 8-21
Drawing & Celebration 9/22
$10 Raffle Duck = Chance to win (2) $500 (25) $100
We had an amazing kick-off Friday, Sept. 8 to Rio’s 3rd Annual Duck Derby with a fun and energetic Duck Derby Rally hosted by social chairs Cade Johnson and Aiden Jang. Dressed as ducks they fired up our 2018-2021 classes to compete to sell ducks earning individual prizes, $1,000 for the class who sells the most ducks, and bragging rights for their Duck Dunker (Frosh – Principal Ginter, Soph – Mr. Korich, Jr – Mr. Asher, Senior – VP Snyder) to select the winning ducks on Friday, Sept. 22 at noon at the Rio pool. We also had Quackles the duck there from our Marquee Sponsor, Quick Quack Car Wash, handing out Duck Derby t-shirts and half-off car washes to the students!
Here’s the 5 W’s and How:
WHAT: OneRio’s biggest FUNdraiser of the year! If we sell all 3,000 ducks that means we’ll raise $30,000 to keep supporting our students, staff, and our Rio commnity to keep #GreatThingsHappeningAtRio!
Ordering a $10 rubber duck through a student or online will enter you in a raffle for (2) $500 prizes or (25) $100 prizes and a Quick Quack car wash. The class who sells the most ducks will have their Duck Dunker jump into the duck-filled Rio diving pool to randomly select 27 ducks. Students who sold a winning duck get a free Duck Derby t-shirt.
There are prizes for students who sell the most ducks, $1,000 for the class who sells the most ducks, and free food and T-shirts for students who turn in order forms at the Daily Duck Table! (You can select which grade you want to receive credit for online duck sales.)
HOW: Order raffle ducks from your student or online at https://squareup.com/market/rio-americano-hs-ptsa and OneRio.org and RioAmericano.org
WHERE: Your students should have brought home an order form. They can get one from their teachers, the Attendance office or the Daily Duck Table at lunch in front of the library. Sales are also online at OneRio.org and RioAmericano.org. The Drawing is at the Rio diving pool.
WHEN: Sept. 8 – 22. Rubber duck raffle sales are ongoing through students and online until Thursday, Sept. 21. On Friday, Sept. 22 the Duck Derby Drawing will be at noon at the Rio diving pool. Afterward is the Duck Derby Celebration a 1-hour lunch with $3.50 BBQ hamburger/hot dog meal, $3 frozen yogurt from our Duck Derby sponsor Crazy for Yogurt, and music by Rio senior, DJ Blake Harris.
WHO & WHY: Why should you, family, friends, co-workers, and anyone who is feeling lucky enter our drawing for 27 chances to win $3,500 cash prizes (and a free Quick Quack car wash)? Because thanks to our wonderful sponsors below, we already have covered our costs and have $2,000 toward Rio school pride and spirit events, projects, and support! That means ALL PROCEEDS from duck sales go back toward making #GreatThingsHappeningAtRio – like sponsoring the new senior tradition, Senior BBQ and Pool Party at Rio del Oro, sponsoring the Independent Living Skills garden and Rio Wreath delivery to Sunrise Assisted Living seniors, the new die-cut machine students are already using to print their digital art products in Mr. Feld’s class, Payday Perks for our staff, and more!
Thank you to our Sponsors who have already gotten the 2017 Rio Duck Derby off to a great start!
