About the Rubber Duck Derby

The Rubber Duck Derby is a charity event that benefits the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County.  This year, 20,000 cute rubber ducks donned in sunglasses will be dropped into Lake Lanier at the Lake Lanier Olympic Center for a race to the finish line.  People donate from $5 to adopt a single duck up to $100 for a pack of 25.  The lucky ducks (a.k.a. winners) take home great prizes. Proceeds raised from the Derby benefit over 5,600 local kids through after school activities, sports and summer programs.
