Supporting at risk children across Guelph

On May 17, 2023 the Rotary Club of Guelph Wellington provided an ‘advance’ to Food4Kids Guelph ( ), on our Rotary Duck Race fundraiser. Food4Kids provides food for at risk children, for the weekend to over 400 children across 30+ schools in Guelph.

Over the past few years, the RC of Guelph Wellington has provided approximately $25,000 annually, from our Canada Day Rubber Duck Race. This tremendous organization, led by Terrie Jarvis and Celia Clark, is our primary recipient again this year. During the pandemic, we had gone to a virtual format, but this year we wanted to go back to a live event, but needed to push the date to the end of August, due to the lack of events at Riverside Park on Canada Day. We felt that the needs at Food4Kids was too great for them to wait until September for our funds, so we provided a portion a bit early, to get them into the summer. 
Tickets are available at ,so if you feel the need for speed, log on, follow the links and buy a ticket or 3. The Grand Prize is $500 per month, for a year, courtesy of Zehrs Markets. All net ticket sales will go to Food4Kids Guelph.
