Lacey Rotary raised $69,140 in the 2020 Duck Dash raffle for local and international charity projects. Due to Covid-19, the club could not host an in-person event, but that didn’t stop them from achieving a fantastic result.

Nearly 7,000 tickets – Ducks – were sold for the drawing, and community members won two dozen great prizes including $5,000 cash, a diamond ring, and a vacation to Maui.

President Kelly Golob praised the hard work of Lacey Rotary Club members to make the event a success, despite the challenging circumstances.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the incredible team effort that made this year’s Duck Dash the most successful fundraiser in our club’s 50-year history,” Kelly said. “The need in our community is so huge and we look forward to being able to use 100% of this money to help local and international charitable organizations fund projects to make our community and the world a better place.”

Raffle items are donated, so all Duck Dash funds are distributed to worthwhile causes. Past recipients of Duck Dash funds include Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County, Lacey Loves to Read, Homeless Backpacks, the Thurston County Food Bank, and more!

Nonprofit organizations can submit applications to receive Duck Dash funding to club outreach director Tony Barrett at tony.barrett1080@gmail.com.
