Duck Dash History

Duck Dash Raises over $212,000 on the Fourth of July

Rotary Club of Arlington Sets a New Record of 17,372 tickets sold

The Rotary Club of Arlington sold the most Duck Dash tickets ever in its 27 year history at the Annual Great Stilly Duck Dash on the Fourth of July. With ticket sales totaling $71,625, combined with $90,650 in donations from sponsors, and a $50,000 match from Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians - the Rotary Club of Arlington raised $212,275 at its annual fundraiser.

“I’m thrilled with our record-breaking results, but not surprised as our community is such a giving place,” said Duck Dash Chairperson Erik Granroth. “The funds we raised this year will benefit many organizations in our communities. And, the splash pad - once Rotary completes fundraising for it - will be enjoyed by for years to come by families and kids at Haller Park.”

The top ten winners - at $1,000 each - of the annual rubber duck race down the Stilly River were Lyle Ryan, Mabel Newton, Annie Grieb, Judy Claxton, Karlyn Ames, Chuck Patten, Randy Demoss, George Reid, and Mark Shapiro (twice). There were ten winners of $100 each, as well: Elizabeth Briggs, Julie Dickhud, Muriel Place, Pioneer Nuggets, Ryan McDuffy, Nancy Truitt Pearce, Kurt Boxleitner, Mary TImmerman, Tiffany Barton, and Rocky Ogden.

At least $50,000 of ticket sales will go to help build a splash pad at Haller Park, as well as the $50,000 match from the Stillaguamish Tribe. The Rotary Club of Arlington has committed to build a splash pad at Haller Park over two multi-year phases. Rotary will continue to fundraise for the splash page through sponsorships, donations from Friends of the Park, and through partnership with the City of Arlington to obtain grants.

The success of this year’s Duck Dash would not have been possible without the support of the many local businesses. Dwayne Lane’s Chevrolet of Arlington was the platinum sponsor at $10,000 for the third year in row. Sound Tractor donated a tractor to pull the Rotary Train in parades and at Rotary events. Symmetry Chiropractic donated at the gold level ($5,000), as well as partners Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics & Skagit Regional Health. A complete list of sponsors can be found at www.rotaryclubofarlington.com.

Silver sponsors ($2,000) were AMT, Angel of the Winds, B&B Fabricators, Cascade Kropz, LLC, Cuz Concrete, Family Pet Medical & Surgery, K-Fox, Penway Media, and the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians. Bronze sponsors ($1,000) were Acute Autoworks, A-Plus Water Service, Arlington Electric, Arlington Hardware, Bailey, Duskin & Peiffle, PS, Bistro San Martin, Blue Bird Café, Coastal Community Bank, Devin Dickinson, DDS, Eagle Family Dental, Edward Jones-John Meno, Farmers Insurance, Gerber Collision, Global Machine Works, Kulits Orthodontics, Moss Adams, LLP, Nelson Petroleum, Pamela Beaton, CPA, Penny Lee Trucking, Rocket Alley, Skagit Bank, Smokey Point Animal Hospital, State Farm Insurance, Stillaguamish Athletic Club, Unique Interiors, Vitalire, and Williams & Nulle.

All funds raised from the sale of Duck Dash tickets are invested in the community to enhance the lives of kids, seniors and community members in Arlington, Lakewood and Darrington, as well as around the globe.
