ABOUT THE EVENT

QUACK-QUACK! The 2023 PBA Pluck-A-Duck Raffle Event is a fun 2-day event held August 20 from 10:00am – 3:00pm and Monday, August 21 at NOON. The Raffle Event joins forces with the Town of Putnam’s Main Street Car Cruise on August 20, where attendees will enjoy viewing over 1,000 classic cars, live music & more, including the Kids Corner in Rotary Park, where Bounce Houses, Photo Booth, Arts & Crafts Tent, and Celebrity Dunk Tank await kids of all ages. Post a special wish that would make you feel just ducky on the Day Kimball Healthcare Wall Of Wishes, and a donation will be made to Make-A-Wish Connecticut, in support of creating live changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

 

On August 21, over 5,000 rubber ducks will be released at our secret duck pond location in Putnam CT to be ‘plucked’ for a chance to win 85+ fantastic prizes, including gift certificates, tickets to events and much more! And after all prizes have been plucked, the final six waddlers out of the pond will be

selected for our “Lame Duck” prizes, sponsored by Hope Lodge Venue and New York Pizza Company.

The PBA Pluck-a-Duck Raffle Event is the major fundraising event for the Putnam Business Association. Funds raised will support future free community events such as Zombie Fashion Show, The Great Pumpkin Festival, and Fire & Ice Festival, drawing tens of thousands of visitors to the Quiet Corner.

 

Again this year, more than 27 non-profit organizations will also benefit from selling duck raffle tickets as an opportunity to raise funds for their worthy cause and those they serve in our community.
