Franklin Young Professionals (FYP) have raised $2,560 with their Macon Waves Ducky Derby, which is just over half of their original goal of $5,000 for the FYP scholarship fund.
“We're over halfway there in reaching our goal of $5,000,” said Brad Hyder, FYP member. “We are excited considering there is huge fundraising potential at the actual event by selling more ducks and food. We are grateful for the community involvement and support of local businesses and donors. We have 43 event sponsors so far and look forward to recruiting more. This is a huge success for a first time event.”
