1st. annual rubber ducky race to benefit adopt-a-classroom



On July 8th. 2008 hundreds of rubber duckies were dropped into the Sea of Cortez in front of the resorts on Sandy Beach for the first annual Adopt-a- classroom- RUBBER DUCKY RACE.  All of these ducks were donated by Art Sloane of Rocky Point Tours and the locals and tourists purchased numbered Ducks (3 for $10) to benefit the students of Adopt- A – Classroom program.
The ducks raced to shore with the incoming tide and were carefully collected and their number logged to determine the winners.  Each winning duck represented a prize donated from the many sponsors of the event which included Sun n Fun Dive Shop, Rick Hammers Fishing  & Scuba, Playa Inn Motel, Mark Olszewski, La Curva Restaurant, Rey del Mar, Al Capone’s restaurant, Sr. Amigos Restaurant, Mercedes gifts, Rocky Point Boat trips.com & Kayak Rocky Point to name  a few of the generous sponsors.
This event raised $ 1,070 USD for much needed school supplies for the local schools.  Thank you to all of our sponsors and participants.
