The Rotary Club of Kurrajong North Richmond Inc. is back again with The Great Rotary Whitewater Duck Race, which will be held at Penrith on 9 September 2023.
The Race between over a thousand rubber ducks on Saturday will give people a chance to win $5,000. In turn, the fundraising event will provide the Rotary Club in North Richmond with the necessary funds to donate to its clubs and organisations.
Each rubber duck is numbered while the ducks “race” down the man-made whitewater course and its current – similar to a raffle. Different prizes await the ducks once they cross the finish line.
One duck costs $5, while three cost $10. The Rotary Club has set up pop-up stands at its club in North Richmond, the Bendigo Bank in Richmond, and the Richmond Marketplace.
The The Great Rotary Whitewater Duck Race starts at 1:00 PM and ends at 1:30 PM. The Penrith Whitewater Stadium at McCarthys Lane in Cranebrook, NSW 2749 is the venue.
