Pace Center For Girls Prepares For Their Annual Lucky Duck Race Fundraiser

Quacky’s back in Manatee County and ready to make a splash for Pace Center for Girls!  On August 28th, the 12th Annual Lucky Ducky Race for Pace presented by Carl Reynolds Law will be racing at least 25,000 rubber ducks down the Manatee River for prizes.  You could drive home in a Jeep sponsored by Firkins Automotive (2 year lease or $5,000) or win weekly dinner for 2 at Anna Maria Oyster Bar for a YEAR!  In celebration of Pace’s 31st Anniversary in Manatee County, prizes will be awarded for the first 31 ducks to cross the finish line.

Everyone can join the fun with adoptions starting at only $5.00.  Family Quack Packs of ducks are available for only $20, or you can adopt an entire Flock of 30 ducks for $100.  

All adoptions make a difference, from providing school supplies for a $5.00 adoption to counseling for $100.  Pace girls have made the personal choice to come to school year-round to catch up academically and strive to meet goals, learning real-life skills that will provide them with a bright future.  The Lucky Ducky Race for Pace reminds them that the community is cheering for them alongside the all the rubber ducks adopted for the race.

We race ducks to raise funds and awareness for Pace Center for Girls, in a way that involves the entire community.  Our resources help us find the great in every girl, like Zykeria (picture of grad throwing cap in drop box)

Zykeria is a proud 2021 Pace Graduate!  At Pace, Zykeria focused academically and earned 22.5 credits, plus served on the Girls’ Leadership Council.  But that’s only part of the story – she also worked part time through the pandemic at a local retirement home, gaining valuable experience in the medical field.  Her plans after Pace include the Patient Care Program at Manatee Technical College, with the future goal of becoming a Registered Nurse.  

We cannot wait to see what the future holds for Zykeria and all our graduates.

August 28, 2021 is the Lucky Ducky Race for Pace presented by Carl Reynolds Law, approximately 11:00 am (tidal dependent) at Caddy’s Bradenton
