YMCA: Sponsor This Year’s Memorial Day Duck Race

From the South Mountain YMCA:

This Duck Needs Your Support! Sponsorship Opportunities for Annual Maplewood/South Orange Duck Race

The South Mountain YMCA is hosting the 19th annual Duck Race on Memorial Day 2017 (May 29) and is counting on the community’s support to help make this year’s Duck Race the “quackiest” ever.

The Duck Race is a beloved Memorial Day tradition, taking place after the Maplewood Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony at Town Hall. Each year, hundreds of locals cheer on their ducks as they race down the Rahway River in Maplewood, in the quest for prizes — and, of course, glory.

Besides the wonderful exposure and general sense of being terrific community boosters, sponsors also get a charming rubber duck decal — shown here at Maplewood Stationers with owner Charlie Gianni. If you’ve got a shop window, you’re gonna want a duck decal!

Levels of support include:

Gold: Large Banner at the start/finish line – $500

Silver: Medium sign in the river – $250

Bronze: Small sign/sandwich board at the ticket booth – $100

If you’re interested in sponsorship, contact Lisa at [email protected] or call the Welcome Center at 973.762.4145

All proceeds will go to the YMCA’s Annual Support Campaign and the Togetherhood initiative, supporting the local South Orange-Maplewood community, including the Department of Child Protection and Permanency.

Current sponsors include:  Roman Gourmet, BCB Bank, Maplewood Rotary, South Orange Village Alliance, Jerry Gonsalves, DMD, Mona Lisa Framing & more!
