Silverdale Rotary Duck Race Starts in...
It’s About Community
Ducks Change Lives!
The Silverdale Rotary Club hosts the annual Duck Race during Whaling Days, held the last weekend of July at the Silverdale Waterfront. When you purchase duck tickets you are contributing to programs that support our community.
Buying duck tickets changes lives. Thanks to community sponsorship and volunteer support, all money raised goes directly to programs that impact the lives of those in need. From feeding homeless children, supporting the Teen Center at the Haselwood Family YMCA, and Stand Up For Kids, to providing scholarships for graduating High School Seniors, dictionaries to 3rd Graders or supporting Corey’s Day at the Farm, the Silverdale Rotary Club supports our youth.
Duck Bucks Helping Out
Elayne Burton, Silverdale Rotary Club Treasurer (at left), presents a Duck Buck check of $1,500 to recipient Kali Jensen of Night to Shine. Night to Shine is a prom for people ages 16 and older that have special needs, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and hosted by newlife.
Ducks Helpling Kids
Silverdale Rotary awarded a record-breaking Duck Buck grant of $3,000 to Holly Ridge Center to support infants and toddlers who are diagnosed with a disability or who have a developmental concern at birth or in very early childhood. The Duck Bucks will purchase equipment to support early intervention.
Ducks in the Classroom
Classrooms across Central Kitsap elementary schools got their brand new dictionaries from the Silverdale Rotary Club. The kids were smiling from ear to ear and cheering with excitement which makes it a rewarding and fun use of money from the annual duck race.
Around the World
Rotary members have played a key role in bringing the world to the brink of polio eradication. Their efforts have not only ended polio in 122 countries but also created a system for tackling myriad other health priorities, such as Ebola. Money from the Duck Race reaches around the world.

Let’s hear it from the community
What the Duck are People Saying?
“Our family spent that day at the waterfront. The kids were so excited to watch the ducks starting the race. Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteers who made it all possible. Oh, and I won a great gift certificate.”
“I’m amazed by how much money and time goes into the Duck Race. I appreciate all of the sponsors who continually donate money and services, year after year. That’s why I always shop local. My way of saying thanks!”
“OMG I won!”
“This is the second time I’ve won. I can’t believe it. Of course, I was hoping for the Duck Truck, but the money and massage came in handy. Thank you to the Silverdale Rotary Club for everything you do.”
“A great time for all!”
“I think I’ve been to just about every race over the past 25 years. Always have a great time down at Whaling Days. The music and food is just a small part of what makes Silverdale such a wonderful place to be on a sunny afternoon.”
A warm-hearted thank you
