To take part in the Lucky Ducky Swim an interested person must adopt a rubber duck that will then “swim” in the Culver Plunge. Each year there are a number of Lucky Ducky winners, with the top prize being $500 and the second prize being two tickets to a Dodgers game.  There will be other prizes announced at a later date as well.

The proceeds from the Lucky Ducky Swim go to benefit Culver City children and youth programs within the Culver City Real Estate area. The Culver City Rotary Club is an ardent supporter of education in Culver City.  In the past the club has provided dictionaries to every 3rd grader, Chrome books and computers, white boards and projectors, and other technology to the Culver City School District. The club also assists the Backpack for Kids Program, which works to provide food for needy children on the weekend when school lunches are not an option. This year the foundation also provided a grant in support of the Culver City High School Robotics Team.

Local listing agent Martin Feinberg encourages all who are interested in taking part in the Lucky Ducky Swim to go by the Rotary booth at the Fiesta.  Each Lucky Ducky can be adopted for $5, with a Six-Quack for $25 and a 25 duck “flock” for $100. Donations for the cause are also accepted.

Rotarian Carmela Raack stated, “Every time we talk about the Lucky Ducky Swim people smile.  It is a pleasure to see people enjoy such a fun and happy activity.”
