Second annual Victoria Duck Safari Race

The organization met their goal to sell 10,000 ducks raising $50,000

VICTORIA, Texas – The second annual Victoria Duck Safari Race was held at Ethel Lee Tracy Park. The ducks raced to the finish line with $5,000 up for grabs for whoever’s duck finished in first place. The event showcased 28 local non-profits with proceeds going to them all. Duck Safari’s event chairman William Myers says that the main goal of the event is to connect the community with local non-profits.

“If nothing else it allows them to get their message out of who they are, they have their own hyperlink that brings people to their website there’s folks that find donors that they didn’t even know about and they can reach out to them and say hey we see that you care about us what else can we do to continue your motive in the community,” says Myers.

The Duck Safari met their goal to sell 10,000 ducks at $5 a duck meaning over $50,000 was raised with part of that going to the various participating non-profits. This was also a chance for community members to engage with the non-profits, from Adopt-A-Pet to the Children’s Discovery Museum, all having their own booths at the event. Along with live music and warm weather, Myer’s says that this year’s duck safari has been a success.
