The Junior League of Savannah is wrapping up their year with two upcoming fundraising virtual events.

Duck Pluck

The JLS Duck Pluck is currently ongoing, with the pluck to happen live at noon, March 27.

Contributors can purchase a lonely duck, one; oodles of ducks, six; a quacker’s dozen, 12 or the whole raft, 25 ducks.

“We’ve got a little duck tracker,” said Jackie Schott, JLS president.

Ducks will be “plucked” using a number generator and winners will be announced.

The first place winner will receive $1,000; second place will receive $500 and third place will receive $250.

“We’re doing cash, because who doesn’t want cash right now?” Schott said.

More than 900 ducks were adopted of the league’s 5,000 duck goal as of this week, totaling in nearly $4,000 raised.
