Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Foundation Financial Group bid farewell to the 12-foot duck that spent a week promoting the 2013 Rubber Duck Regatta by hanging out in front of FFG’s Dayton Retail Branch Office, located at 2745 Miamisburg Centerville Road #2. Foundation Financial’s focus has now shifted to the next stage of its sponsorship, a relay race held by United Rehabilitation Services to benefit children and adults with disabilities.
The inflatable mascot has been migrating around Dayton, visiting dedicated corporate sponsors and stirring up excitement for the 10th Annual Rubber Duck Regatta on Saturday, Sept. 21. To welcome him to the FFG team, Foundation Financial Group employees created a six-foot neck tie for Quackers to wear. Passersby paused to take pictures with Quackers and discuss the upcoming URS Rubber Duck Regatta. In addition to imparting mortgage, insurance, and retirement advice, FFG’s experts encouraged people to help support the URS mission by visiting daytonducks.com and adopting a rubber duckling.
“A giant duck that sports stylin’ shades and a fancy neck tie definitely attracts attention and starts conversations,” said Tessa Lawson, Foundation Financial Group event coordinator. “I spoke with a couple dining at the restaurant beside our office about how they had already adopted ducks. I was able to detail how their support helps United Rehabilitation Services continue to enrich the lives of the disabled. I miss smiling up at Quackers every morning, but I’ll be seeing him at the Ducks on the Square event.”
Foundation Financial Group employees have begun preparing for Ducks on the Square, which will take place on Friday, Sept. 13. A four-person team of FFG professionals will represent the financial services corporation in a series of duck-related relay races. The Ducks on the Square event will be held at noon in the Courthouse Square and will feature a corporate duck race in the fountain.
“To support an amazing organization, I get to splash around in a fountain downtown…legally,” said Lawson. “I’m so excited. We absolutely shine at teamwork, so I know FFG’s going to do really well with the relay races. Foundation Financial Group is having so much fun supporting United Rehabilitation Services in its mission to enhance the lives of disabled children and adults.”
