March of Dimes seeking duck vendors for annual Rubber Duck Regatta

Every year, the Keystone Division of the March of Dimes holds the annual Rubber Duck Regatta at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park, Tipton Waterworks.
This marks the 11th year for the regatta which will be held Sunday, August 10 at 3 p.m. at the park.
In preparation for the event, the March of Dimes is currently seeking individuals and organizations interested in becoming rubber duck vendors.
As a duck vendor, organizations will be provided with souvenir rubber ducks, tickets and posters by the March of Dimes to promote the regatta.
Each ticket sold will correspond to a number on a matching “floater” duck that will be entered into the race down Tipton Waterworks.
Five ducks will be chosen by a March of Dimes ambassador child, and those five winners will receive one of the valuable packages donated by local businesses, with the grand prize being a $1,000 Wolf Furniture Shopping Spree.
To become a March of Dimes Rubber Duck Regatta vendor, or to receive more information about the event, contact Kimberly Tweedy by phone at: (814) 330-8601 or by email at:
