PaDucky Derby Race to Benefit Merryman House
The 3rd annual PaDucky Derby on April 29 will feature 10,000 rubber ducks racing in support of the Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center and its mission to Saving, Building and Changing the lives of domestic violence victims. The PaDucky Derby is a great way for people of all ages and areas to get involved in a worthy cause.
Please note the new location - the event is at 3pm at the lake in the Commerce Park (formerly known as the Inforamation Age Park). Previous events were held at Noble Park Lake.
Ducks are adopted by donors from all over the globe for a chance to win one of three cash prizes - $2,500, $1,000, or $500. Adopt one duck for $5.00, or adopt a “quack-pack” of 6 ducks for $25.00. Business sponsorships are also available at various levels and provide businesses an opportunity to be official race-day sponsors!
The Merryman House operates a 24-hour, 24-bed emergency shelter for men, women, and children, as well as four outreach offices that support victims of domestic violence on their road to recovery. The organization provides a 24-hour crisis line, on-going case management, economic empowerment and housing stabilization services to more than 750 clients per year. Funds raised from the PaDucky Derby support these services and the annual operations of the organization as a whole.
