mhn Internet Marketing ( ) and Gilmore Marketing Concepts ( ) are proud to announce their involvement in the launch of the new website and online store for the Boys and Girls Club of Elgin's 2008 Duckapalooza Music Festival. The Elgin-area marketing agencies donated their resources to help the Boys and Girls Club reach increased fundraising and promotional goals for this year's festival. mhn Internet Marketing donated its public relations, web design and e-commerce talents. Gilmore Marketing Concepts, Inc. donated graphic design, illustration and photography services. Windy City Web Solutions ( ) donated web hosting for the new site.

"We are very proud to have received the support of mhn Internet Marketing, Gilmore Marketing Concepts, and Windy City Web Solutions," said Alan Brostoff, Development Director of the Elgin Boys and Girls Club. "Our new website presents a professional and exciting face that we expect will help grow the event, especially in terms of increased fundraising and event attendance."

The 10th annual Elgin Duck Pluck ( ) will be held September 6, 2008 from Noon till 10:30 p.m. at Festival Park in downtown Elgin. This is the second year that the Duck Pluck has taken this form. Previously, the event was a duck race where thousands of ducks were let loose in the Fox River. The Elgin Duck Pluck now involves dumping thousands of plastic ducks in the new Festival Park fountain. Instead of waiting for the ducks to float to the finish line, local children now rush in and pluck individual ducks to determine the winners.

Prizes this year include a chance to win 1-million dollars, a 2008 Chevy Aveo from Biggers Chevrolet, a $1,000 shopping spree from Jewel-Osco, and other prizes from Elgin-area businesses.

"It is an honor to help out with this event in any way possible," said James Hills, President of mhn Internet Marketing. "Our agency firmly believes in helping our community, especially by helping organizations like the Boys and Girls Club of Elgin, the Bartlett Knights of Columbus and other organizations that we have donated our time and resources to help."
