DULUTH, Ga. - Aug. 22, 2017 // PRNewswire // - This year Special Olympics Georgia hosted its annual fundraiser "Duck Pluck" at Post Chastain in Atlanta. Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies has been a long-time supporter for the Special Olympics Georgia athletes and a Duck Pluck sponsor for the past 6 years. This year, Kids 'R' Kids once again participated in the Duck Pluck fundraiser, sending 84 ducks into the pool to compete. The fundraiser provides meals, housing, and medals for athletes during the State Games. Kids 'R' Kids is a proud sponsor of this event and chooses Special Olympics Georgia as one of the many charitable foundations it supports. This donation and support came directly from the Kids 'R' Kids corporate headquarters which is located in Duluth, Georgia. Each Kids 'R' Kids Franchise academy is also encouraged to participate in charitable foundations of their choosing as part of the Kids 'R' Kids philosophy. Since 2011, Kids 'R' Kids has donated over $15,000 to Special Olympics Georgia.
The event was held at 1:00 PM on Friday, August 11, at the pool at Post Chastain. Six lucky ducks were selected to receive a number of prizes from two round-trip tickets with Spirit Airlines to a $250 Macy's gift card. Kids 'R' Kids employees Nancy Freeman and Karen Owens were in attendance this year and happily cheered on the Kids 'R' Kids ducks.
