Quack-tacular Lucky Duck Day arrives this Saturday at the Atrium pool
Last year, the Lucky Duck event raised $5,500 for Bridging Freedom, the Tampa Bay area nonprofit organized to fight human trafficking.
This Saturday, April 12, the second annual “Quack-tacular Lucky Duck Day” fundraiser will take place at the Sun City Center Atrium outdoor pool from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a delicious lunch provided by the Diamondnettes and the SCC Softball League. The Front Porch Pickers will provide musical entertainment from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. And at 1:30 p.m., the SCC Swim Dancers will perform their synchronized swimming program.
Numbered toy ducks will be tossed into the SCC Atrium pool following the Swim Dancers’ program. A blindfolded swimmer will pluck five numbered ducks for cash prizes: the grand prize of $250 plus prizes of $100, $75, $50 and $25. Other prizes will also be awarded. Prizes have been donated by sponsors and friends of the Campaign Against Human Trafficking.
Lucky Duck Day is an event to raise money for a facility to house and rehabilitate young girls rescued from human bondage. Last year, the Lucky Duck event raised $5,500 for Bridging Freedom, the Tampa Bay area nonprofit organized to fight human trafficking.
The Diamondnettes and the SCC Softball League will be serving lunch from 11:30 to 2 p.m. The menu includes chicken salad on a croissant, barbecued hamburgers and dessert. Lunch is available à la carte or combo-style.
Thanks to donations from Winn- Dixie, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Publix, all money from the food sale will go to the Campaign Against Human Trafficking.
Lucky Duck tickets are sold at the SCC Atrium and Kings Point North Clubhouse, as well as at the Renaissance Spa and Bette’s Tip to Toe Hair Salon in Ruskin. On April 6, tickets were sold at the United Community Church, St. Andrew Presbyterian Church and Our Lady of Guadalupe after the morning service. Quack-tackular duck tickets will be sold the day of the event.
Transportation may be a problem during construction. Plan to go in your golf cart, bring a friend, park on the lawn. The United Community Church has offered parking in its church parking lot on April 12 for cars and golf carts parking. It is a short walk over to the SCC Atrium.
