Final Event of the 2020-21                      Fundraising Season

Lucky Duck Derby

 

Sales began in January as Patsy Scuzzo, head duck seller, and Myrna Bianco, sold ducks for the Derby, along with a team of volunteers. The event was held on April 15 at the PG&CC pool.  658 ducks were gently placed in the pool....and then the fun began.  Forty-five random ducks were plucked from the pool and prizes were awarded.  

 

A synchronized swim team of eight performed to entertain the crowd.

 

The event was Co-Chaired by Brenda Eckard and Janice McClanaghan.

 

Monies raised at all PCF events benefit nonprofit agencies in South Sarasota County.
