Our 7th Annual Third Beach Duck Race will be held Thursday, July 11, 2013 at Third Beach in Middletown RI. Hundreds of rubber ducks will race through the waters of Third Beach in the family-friendly event to benefit the Middletown Education Collaborative and educational programs for Middletown public school students.
The Third Beach Duck Race is a ton of fun for the whole family. Your little ones will love watching hundreds of rubber ducks race along the waters of Third Beach for a chance to win $1000. Have you ever seen hundreds of little rubber ducks bobbing along at the beach? It is quite a sight to behold! It doesn’t happen everywhere, but it does happen right here in Middletown.
Along with the duck race, there will be family-friendly beach games, face-painting, crafts, a DJ and food. This is a great night for the whole family – see your friends, play some games, dance in the sand and maybe win $1000.
When you buy a duck for $10, you are entered to win the $1000 First Prize ($350 – 2nd Prize, $150 – 3rd prize.). First duck to cross the finish line wins the prize!
So buy a duck and cheer it on to a first place finish!

Yesterday, we listed a brief summary of our Spring 2013 Grants that we recently funded.
Today, we would like to take a moment and thank all those who made funding grants possible. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated their time, effort and money in this great endeavor working for our Middletown students. Without your work, vision and generosity, none of this would be possible.
