SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — “Adopt” a rubber duck and enter to win a chance at a Hawaii vacation or ticket to a Taylor Swift concert in this 8th annual nonprofit’s fundraiser.

Coastal Horizons is hosting its Coastal Duck Derby on Friday, May 19 at 5:30 p.m. at Jungle Rapids. Rubber ducks will “race” down a slide at the water park and through the lazy river.

The family friendly event allows participants to purchase a duck for $5 each, or packages of six for $25; 12 for $50; 25 for $100; 125 for $500; and 250 for $1,000.

The proceeds support the Crisis Intervention Services of Coastal Horizons including its Rape Crisis Center, Open House Youth Shelter, Transitional Living Program, and Maternity Housing Program.

This year’s grand prize winner will have the option to choose between a weeklong trip for two to Hawaii that includes airfare and a rental car or two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert this summer that includes airfare and hotel. The winner does not need to be present to collect the prize and airfare will be provided from anywhere within the continental U.S.

To purchase a duck, go here.
