Durham, NC (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin sponsored the Duck Decorating Contest at the 3rd annual Great American Tobacco Duck Race on Saturday, October 1. The event was held at the American Tobacco Campus (ATC) in Durham, North Carolina.
Attorney Tara J. Williams, head of the Intellectual Property Department at James Scott Farrin, and several other employees volunteered to assist adults and children in decorating their rubber ducks at the James Scott Farrin Duck Decorating Tent.
The firm was also represented by Personal Injury Attorney J. Gabe Talton, who was present to act as a judge in the Duck Decorating Contest. Talton was joined by several other judges, including: Michael Maze, the Meteorologist for WRAL-TV News; the Rat King from the “Nutcracker” play; Wool E. Bull, mascot of the Durham Bulls; and Luck E. Duck.
Judges were asked to find a winner of the duck decorating contest by selecting what they considered to be the most creatively decorated duck. The winner of the duck decorating contest was chosen by the applause of the audience. Attorney Gabe Talton had the right eye for creativity as he picked what the audience considered to be the winning duck.
“I had a wonderful time participating as a judge in the Duck Decorating Contest,” Personal Injury Attorney Gabe Talton said. “It was interesting to see how ingenious and creative people became when decorating their duck. Both adults and children enjoyed the event.”
Over 1,500 rubber ducks raced down the Ole Bull River as people watched the rubber ducks float through the center of the American Tobacco Campus. The first, second, and third-place finishers were awarded a prize. Approximately 4,000 people attended the Fox 50 Family Fest and raised more than $28,000.00 to benefit the Durham Literacy Center, Explorer Post 50, and the Inter-faith Food Shuttle.
The Durham Literacy Center seeks to improve literacy among adults and teens in Durham County through various educational programs. Their outreach ranges from English classes for adult immigrants to an academy for teenagers.
The Inter-faith Food Shuttle aspires to end hunger within the community by obtaining food from donors that would normally go to waste, and distributing it to those in need. It is estimated that the program and its large community receive more than 6 million pounds of food from 220 food donors on an annual basis.
Explorer Post 50 allows youth ages 14 to 20 to experience television broadcasting in a hands-on environment as they learn the various elements of television while building character. This program is sponsored by Capital Broadcasting Company.
