Be The Lucky Duck-The 9th Annual Ducky Derby!


Wouldn’t it be great to win some extra money right before spring break? Well I have a super easy and fun way for you to do that!

On March 9th at 12:30 in the pool at the Batavia campus, the 9th Annual Ducky Derby will be held. Prior to this date you can purchase a ticket and donate anywhere from $1 to $5, and when you donate you get a souvenir rubber ducky for your generous donation.

If your duck comes in first place you will win a percentage of the proceeds, and the ducks that follow will win a door prize. We have a lot of door prizes donated from local businesses. So even if you don’t win the cash prize, don’t be discouraged, you will still have the chance to win another prize!img_6912

$1 Duck – 10% of funds raised

$2 Duck – 20% of funds raised

$3 Duck – 30% of funds raised

$4 Duck – 40% of funds raised

$5 Duck – 50% of funds raised


All donations for the Ducky Derby are going to the Genesee County United Way; the United Way has already had a total community impact of $9,250,576, it’s amazing that as little as a $1 donation can make you a part of that impact.

There will be a table set up either in the forum or the cafeteria where the tickets and ducks will be sold throughout the day. Tickets will be sold now until March 3rd, which will be your last day to get a duck in the race. If you’re willing to spend $3 on a coffee, why not use that money to donate for a good cause? Stop by and enter your name into the race now!

Phi Theta Kappa Hosts Third Annual “Bake for a Cure”

Genesee Community College’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society hosted their third annual “Bake for a Cure” event this afternoon, Thursday October 17th on campus. With the help of our members, the adviser and officer team set up a booth in the forum and sold tasty treats throughout the afternoon. Attracting hungry students and teachers alike, our annual bake sale was a huge success and we were able to raise well over $300! One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated directly to Genesee Cancer Assistance, a local organization that provides aid for those affected by cancer and their loved ones.

Tasty treats in the forum!

In addition to our baked goods, we also sold raffle tickets for donated baskets and items. Our donated raffle items included gift cards, gift baskets, jewelry, and a beautiful pink ribbon quilt handmade by lung cancer survivor Deb Levinstein.

Thank you to everyone who donated raffle items, baked items for the sale, helped set up, and volunteered their time to work at our booth. A special thanks goes out to everyone who participated to make this year’s event a success!
