Four hundred rubber ducks raced across Wiggins Marina at the Camden Waterfront, NJ along the
Delaware River today at noon at part of the inaugural Captain Quack’s Rubber Duck Race.
All ducks made it to the dock or boom, and three guests of the Battleship New Jersey won prizes
for first three sponsored rubber ducks.
The first place duck won tickets to the annual Battleship Blast dinner on June 30 for Connie Fitler, of
Marlton, NJ. Second place went to the Tierce Family, of Voorhees, NJ, who won an overnight stay aboard
the Battleship. The third place winner, who won tickets for their family to watch the Independence Day
fireworks on the Battleship, is Joanne Elliott, of Levittown, PA.
Funds raised from the Captain Quack Rubber Duck Race will go to the on-going restoration of the
Battleship New Jersey, a non-profit museum and memorial.
Berthed on the Camden Waterfront across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, the Battleship New
Jersey Museum and Memorial is a non-profit historic ship museum that offers tours every day. Have a
Blast aboard the Battleship! The annual Battleship fundraising dinner – the Blast Luau — will take
place on Saturday, June 30 at 7:00pm. Guests will enjoy a delicious Hawaiian-themed meal,
Hawaiian dancing and music and the amazing view of the fireworks over the Delaware River at
dusk! Tickets are a $175 donation per person. Sponsorships are available. To purchase your tickets,
