The Great Naples Duck Race—February 1, 2020

Special thank you to everyone who adopted a duck on the Pilot Club of Naples Team.
Also, to those who at-tended the Second Annual Great Naples Duck Race. It was a rainy day and we did not have a chance to talk to everyone. We know for sure that Larry Rubin, Paulette Dickerson and her family, Joan Hurd, Kathy Hickey and Anchor Owen Foster Hickey were there with the scholarship house resi-dents work begins for the next Annual Great Naples Duck Race. Having a team in the name of the Pilot Club of Naples is a very good thing. This year the Collier County Sheriff’s Office won first for selling the most adoptions. They are a tough act to follow, but we got a late start. We are wishing for an earlier start and better weather. Quack quack.. . .

The Pilot Club of Naples is proud to sponsor this event to benefit NCH Safe & Healthy Chil-dren’s Coalition. Funds raised will provide swimming lessons, drowning prevention projects such as door alarms, life jackets, etc. Rubber ducks were adopted by people online, by mail or through team members. Three winners were announced as their ducks crossed the finish line in the lazy river. First prize $10,000, second prize $5,000 and third prize was $2,500. Plans are already in place for the next Great Naples Duck Race in February 2021.

Fun at the Great Naples Duck Race

Gresham Kite Pilot Scholarship House residents traveled to the Sun-N-Fun Lagoon for the Great Naples Duck Race to benefit Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition. They were wonderful ambassadors for the Scholarship House and for the Pilot Club of Naples.

Janson, Terry, with new residents Denise, Danarria and Marisa did a little dancing to the music of the band before over 5,500 adopted rubber ducks traveled down the lazy river to the finish line.
