City of Elderly Love's Haunted Duck Race 2022!

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Could your spooky little quack win?! Take your shot at one of FOUR amazing prizes by adopting a duck (or 10, there's no limit!) in our first annual Haunted Duck Race! All proceeds help City of Elderly Love continue its lifesaving work, of course.

Please see below for contest rules.

Here's how it works:

We'll be broadcasting live on Sunday, October 30th where 300 little ducky monsters will be taking a dip in our murky swamp (it's really a giant kiddie pool but don't tell them that). Each duck will be numbered 1-300 prior to the event. They'll make a few laps around the swamp with help from some spooky little helpers. Once done swimming, the winning ducks will be randomly plucked from the swamp!

You can adopt each duck for just a $10 donation! Adopt as many as you'd like to increase your chances at winning. However, there are only 300 ducks available for adoption - first come, first serve!

What you may win:

Grand Prize: $500: Megan Pucillo

1st Place: $100 : Elizabeth Hassenthaler

2nd Place: City of Elderly Love Hoodie (your choice of design and size): Tracy Zarzycki

3rd Place: City of Elderly Love "Drink Coffee, Save Senior Pets" Mug: Chris Markunas

How to get started:

Simply register below using our PayPal Donate button below! Be sure to include your CORRECT email address in the transaction details.

We will email you your ducks' randomly assigned numbers within 3 business days of registration. Registration ends Friday, October 28, 2022!

UPDATE: The 2022 Duck Race is SOLD OUT!

A couple important notes and contest rules:

  • This is a VIRTUAL event! There is no need to join in person. Join us live on the City of Elderly Love Facebook page on Sunday, October 30th (exact time to be annouced).

  • You will be notified via email of your ducks' randomly assigned number. If you do not receive an email within 3 business days of your donation, please check your spam/junk folder then email

  • While you are "adopting" a duck, you will not physically receive a duck. Our little monsters will be dried off and stored for next year's event.

  • No worries if you can't tune into our live event: winners will also be announced on all City of Elderly Love social media channels as well as be posted right here on our Haunted Duck Race site! We will reach out to each winner via email to arrange claiming of their winnings.

  • You do not need to be local to Philadelphia to participate!

  • Duck adopters must be 18+ but you are welcome to donate in the name of children or organizations. Please specify who you'd like your donation to be in honor of when assigned your ducks' numbers. The individual who adopted the duck will be awarded the prize.

  • Winners will be notified via email. Prizes must be claimed by November 5, 2022.

  • Chances of winning depend on the total number of entries.
