Wanna buy a duck?

Wanna buy a duck? That’s a famous vaudeville era line, and it's thoroughly appropriate for the fall of 2010.

Explorer Post 50 – the cadre of high school students that produces Bulls’ TV broadcasts – aims to raise $10,000...selling rubber ducks. Hence, I need you to support these young folks and BUY A DUCK. Here’s the background:

The Bulls, Fox50 TV and Capitol Broadcasting Company have recently established a scholarship program at the Triangle Community Foundation for Post 50 seniors. We seeded the fund with $10K. Now, the students are adding to the principle, and ducks are performing better than many investment alternatives!

…so the Post is selling ducks - $10 each - that will be entered in the Great American Tobacco Duck Race on October 2nd. Another twist: we have “corporate” ducks that can represent your business. They go for $250. (Hey, it’s cheaper than a NASCAR sponsorship.)

…so buy a duck, please, and mark October 2nd on your calendar. Watch the ducks paddle down the Old Bull River in the American Tobacco campus courtyard. It’s part of the Fox50 FamilyFest - an afternoon of live music, games, food and fun in downtown Durham.
