Things are getting a little quacky this summer inside your local Service 1st Federal Credit Union branch. Sales for the Service 1st Charity Duck Derby kicked off on Saturday at the Danville Spring Fling. For the past 18 years Service 1st has raised money for local charities through an annual golf tournament, however this year Service 1st is hosting an additional charity event to raise money. The Service 1st Charity Duck Derby will be held on August 11, 2012 at noon on the Danville/Riverside Bridge in Danville. During the event, hundreds of rubber ducks will be dropped into the Susquehanna River, floating down toward the finish line.

Adults 18 and over can purchase a duck for $5, or a flock of 5 ducks for $20. Tickets will be sold in Service 1st branches beginning May 15 through August 10. Each ticket is numbered, and on the day of the event a corresponding numbered duck will be dropped into the river. The ticket holder whose number matches the first duck to cross the finish line will win $1,000. Second place will receive $250 and third place receives $100. There will even be a special prize for the last place finisher!

Funds raised by the Duck Derby will be combined with funds raised by the 19th Annual Service 1st Charity Golf Tournament, which will be held on Friday, August 24, 2012 at the Frosty Valley Country Club in Danville to benefit The Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, Danville Child Development Center and the Ronald McDonald House of Danville.
