Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash
This is a great Fundraising Opportunity to earn money for your band account.
The Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash occurs each October and is a fundraising activity sponsored by the Meridian Kiwanis Club. Students sell duck “adoptions” and for each duck that someone “adopts”, they get one entry to win one of 20 prizes valued at up to $2,500. Sales generally start at the end of summer band camp and run until the end of September. Thousands of numbered rubber “Duckies” are dropped into the pond at Mill Race Park, with winning ducks drawn out at random.
$$ You get 80% of all money you raise! Sell $100 and $80 goes into your account.
$$ Once you find someone to adopt a duck, simply have them fill out the adoption form, collect their money, and turn into Mrs. Corbeels.
$$ There is NOTHING you need to do after the sale! Kiwanis takes care of notifying all the winners and distributing the prizes.
$$ You may sell as many ducks as you want. How much you earn is up to you!
