Rotary of Buffalo Duck Derby

Rotary of Buffalo Duck Derby - RudyThe Rotary Club of Buffalo is quackers about ducks! Rubber ducks that is. Join us for the quaziest race ever when we “launch” hundreds of rubber ducks off the “Blue Line Bridge” at The Canals in Buffalo’s Canalside during the Buffalo Rotary DUCK DERBY fundraiser. With your $5 donation for a duck, YOU have the opportunity to cheer on your little quacker racing for the finish line AND help raise money for our community. 

Help “Rudy” and his feathered friends raise money for The Buffalo Rotary Foundation, Inc.’s diverse community projects that make Western New York a better place to live. Your “ducky donation” will allow our club to help fund projects large and small. Past grants include Rotary Rink, Willie Hutch Jones Educational & Sports Programs, Literacy Volunteers, Cradle Beach, and Buffalo Police Athletic Association (PAL). Buffalo Rotary’s latest grant for Rotary Reads Kids Club to the Buffalo & Erie County Library will provide a whole new life to several public libraries in the City of Buffalo The Rotary Reads Kids Club area of the libraries will encourage reading, discovery and curiosity in children, supplementing the school experience in Buffalo’s key neighborhoods. Not only will the Kids Club promote lifelong reading and learning, it will also be a warm, welcoming and safe place for children and families to read, discover and explore together.
