Fundraising for Nonprofits in the Mid-Willamette Valley

What is The Great Platypus Drop?

The Great Platypus Drop will be coming to the Mid-Willamette Valley on October 8, 2022! We will be dropping 10,000 rubber duckies (Platypuses) from the sky onto a target at Swanson Park. There will be a large target on the field and the Platypus that lands closest to the bullseye will WIN the grand prize: a trip to Hawaii! There will be 12 runner up prizes as well!

You can help by Adopting a Platypus!! For $5, you will be able to adopt a Platypus and root for your little guy to hit the bullseye!

Your donation will be supporting the Albany Area Habitat for Humanity. The Rotary Club of Albany, AND the participating Nonprofit organization of your choice throughout the Mid-Willamette Valley!! Adoptions will open August 1, 2022!

This fun fundraiser will be a fantastic way for our community to come together and support local Nonprofits that have been struggling during the pandemic!! Stay tuned for more information, check us out on Facebook!!

Check out our final raffle results!

Congratulations to the nonprofit winners:
