Duck Derby Reaches Goal, Raises More Than $6K

The United Way of Prince Edward County’s 2nd Annual Great Farmville Duck Derby was held Friday, May 3 – raising a little over $6,000 and putting the group over its fundraising goal for the year.

Last year’s derby brought in approximately $9,000, and while this year’s event raised just over $6,000, board members noted that ticket sales began later and didn’t last as long as last year’s derby was about a month later.

All proceeds will benefit the United Way’s 22 partner organizations.

Meanwhile, the United Way announced that it has surpassed its goal of $60,000 for the fiscal year.
