Dear Rotary Duck Race Festival Sponsor:
Thank you so much for being a generous sponsor for last year’s Rotary Duck Race Festival in which we were happy to be back in the river. Your contribution was put to good use, and the duck race would be impossible without you. Thanks to you, our generous sponsors, we were able to return $161,709 to 66 participating organizations.
Sponsorships allow us to return an impressive 95% of Duck Adoption proceeds to over 60 participating Nonprofit Organizations and Charities who provide valuable services to those who live in the Estes Valley. This return is much higher than most hosted fundraising events.
We have a new option for registering this year. You can now register online by clicking here. Or if you prefer, you can print this invoice and mail it in with your check. Either way, the payments should be mailed to PO Box 1226, Estes Park, CO 80517.
We have three levels of sponsorship: Major, Associate, and our Named Sponsor level. We are proud to announce that Claire’s Restaurant and Bar has stepped up again to be our Named Sponsor! See below for the benefits associated with each level of sponsorship.
The annual Rotary Duck Race Festival in Estes Park is one of the oldest duck races in the United States. Over the past 34 years, the Rotary Duck Race Festival has impressively returned over $3 million to the participating organizations. We deeply appreciate the willingness of sponsors, who make it possible to help these sixty-plus non-profit and charitable organizations carry out their mission to make our town a better place to live.
Thank you for your consideration to join us as an official Major or Associate Sponsor. We need your sponsorship commitment as soon as possible, so that we can make sure you are listed on all the media announcements. Details are listed on the invoice. All donations are tax-deductible. Please call or email me if you have questions or need additional information.
