The Ducks are Back and Ready to Race at the 16th Annual Duck Race
CONROE, TX – The ducks have returned to Montgomery County for the 16th Annual Duck Race benefiting Community Assistance Center (CAC). This year the ducks are making a splash at Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe on Saturday, October 7, 2023 with the 10,000 rubber ducks heading down the lazy river at 10:00 AM. Each $5 donation to adopt a duck makes a difference in providing resources and basic needs assistance to struggling individuals and families right here in Montgomery County.
CAC has a goal to launch 10,000 rubber ducks into the lazy river on event day where they will splash and bob their way to the finish line, and one lucky adoptive duck parent will win the Grand Prize of $1,000.00 in cash, sponsored by Texas First Bank. Other amazing prizes include a two-night stay at Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe, an Apple Watch SE, a Yeti Hopper Flip cooler, and more! You can catch the race on Facebook Live on event day or become an event sponsor to attend the event in person. Adoptive duck parent participants do not have to be present to win.
Proceeds from this fun-filled, “quacktacular” special event will support CAC programs which provide immediate basic needs services and financial assistance with rent and mortgage, utilities, food, clothing, emergency shelter vouchers, prescriptions, back to school assistance, transportation vouchers, education, and disaster recovery. CAC has served residents of Montgomery County for over 42 years, promoting long term solutions and stability for our Montgomery County neighbors experiencing financial hardships.
CAC is thrilled to have the generous support from our Community In Action Annual Sponsors: The Apricity Foundation, Friends of CAC, John & Debbie Templet, Linde, McOmber Ranch, The Tripathy Family, Waste Connections, Wiesner Buick GMC Hyundai, Woodforest National Bank, and Zters Site Services.
