Great Calusa Duck Race

The Great Calusa Duck Race is CLT’s premier fundraising event of the year. Held on the first Saturday in March, the event draws several hundred people to the Low Key Tiki in St. James City.  People spend the afternoon listening to live entertainment, surveying silent auction tables, purchasing beautiful plants, bidding at the live auction, and enjoying food and drink from the Low Key Tiki.

Then it is time for the two Duck Races! First up are the Super Ducks. Super Duck tickets are only sold on Race Day and are limited to 200 tickets. The money is split between the winning Duck and CLT. The main event Great Calusa Duck Race has 2000 rubber ducks dumped into the Monroe Canal racetrack. The first place Duck wins $1000 for its ticket owner, second place wins $500, and third place wins $250. Fourth and fifth place duck winners receive generous gift baskets.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Great Calusa Duck Race will not be held. Instead members of the CLT are working on fundraising ideas that will be fun and also allow for social distancing protocol guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control. Details will be forthcoming.

We are optimistic that this pandemic will be behind us by the time that the 2022 Great Duck Race comes around and we can all be together for another fun filled afternoon.
