Buy, sell, decorate, and race ducks to support the Durham Literacy Center!
The Duck Race will take place on Sunday, October 7, 2012.
Fox Family Fest events will take place from 1pm to 5pm. (If you choose to decorate your ducks at the event, you can take them to one of several duck decorating booths any time between 1pm and 3pm.)
The event works like this:
The prizes are pretty amazing, but the biggest winners are the Durham teens and adults who will learn to read and write as a result of your support. The race will raise funds necessary for books and other learning aids, tutor training supplies, and GED testing fees. One $10 duck will buy a workbook for one beginner reader, two $10 ducks will buy training supplies for one tutor, and one $250 corporate duck will buy materials for two ESOL classes serving up to 30 adult learners.
