The Rotary Club of Daniel Island and other participating Rotary Clubs in the Charleston area will hold the twelfth annual Charity Duck Race, at Smythe Lake Park on Daniel Island. Established by the Rotary Club of Daniel Island in 2007, this fundraising event has grown each year since and now includes the following other Rotary Clubs in the greater Charleston area: Johns Island, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston Breakfast, North Charleston, and the Summerville clubs. This year’s race will be combined with the Daniel Island Property Owners Association’s “Sounds of Summer” concert, featuring the band Plane Jane. There will be food trucks, face painters, and balloon artists. Bring the whole family and join in the fun.
The proceeds from this event are used to fund Rotary community service programs locally and around the world. Each of the participating Rotary clubs is designating one or more low country charities as named beneficiaries of the duck race. These charities represent a wide selection of local nonprofit organizations focused on health and wellness, hunger and nutrition, housing and shelter, children and families, and education and literacy. Over the past 11 years, this event has raised over $1,400,000 for local beneficiaries and Rotary projects worldwide.
