We did it again!
For the second year in a row - GOT DUCK ticket sales will pay for an entire month of Food4Kids'   Again our  amazing sponsors helped to meet this target.  
The Rotary Club of Guelph Wellington just finished their annual Rubber Duck Race on July 1 of this year. The club has been running the ducks down the mighty Speed River, on Canada Day, for over 30 years. This year, as we have since the start of the Covid pandemic, the event was held virtually and ducks were only sold on-line. Our charity of record, as in 2021 was Food4Kids Guelph.
In 2021, we made a 2-year commitment to fund this group. Their needs are so great. There are an estimated 500 severely food insecure children in Guelph. Food4Kids helps to close the weekend hunger gap by providing healthy food bags for children, at their schools on Friday, to take home each weekend.
Last July, we were able to provide approximately $26,000 to F4K and this year, despite poor ticket sales, we will provide a cheque for $25,000. Both years we had great support from many corporate sponsors including Zehrs, who were responsible for providing our Grand Prize and Rona (Guelph), who supplied multiple prizes for Early Bird draws, plus many other groups from the Guelph area. A cheque presentation was made on July 25, 2022 to Food4Kids. Donna Graham attended and accepted the cheque on behalf of Food4kids. Peter Marchand from Zehrs was unable to attend due to issues at their facility. n Range.
