The Chamber is seeking local area nonprofit organizations to benefit from its 14th Annual Duck Race & Festival, to be held Sunday, June 2, 2019, rain or shine, in historic downtown Naugatuck.
Created in 2006 by the Naugatuck Chamber, the Duck Race features the release of over 15,000 rubber ducks from the Whittemore Bridge to race down the Naugatuck River. Each duck is vying to be among the first 25 to cross the finish line to win prizes, including the first prize of $5,000 for one lucky ticket purchaser.
During the annual Duck Race & Festival, Maple and Water Streets in downtown Naugatuck are filled with food and craft vendors, live music, games, circus talent and much more. Businesses also will exhibit their products and services to the more than 5,000 people who attend each year.
The Naugatuck Chamber is seeking local area nonprofit organizations to sell raffle tickets to the general public as a fundraising activity for their organization. "By selling tickets, each organization has the opportunity to raise money specifically to support their individual group's mission and cause, at no cost to them," said Courtney Ligi, director of the Naugatuck Chamber.
There is no fee for an organization to participate;
"Nonprofit organizations do not need to secure a minimum number of tickets to sell, nor is there a maximum number of ticket sales required for a donation to be made by the Chamber to the participating nonprofit," Ligi said
