The contrast of 10,000 plastic ducks being dropped into the defined course on the Indian River created a wonderful spectacle and amazing event for all to witness. Without your support and other generous businesses in assisting in the final production of this function, we would have been lost. This was a first year attempt and the learning curve was incredible; fortunately, we were supported and encouraged by numerous people in helping in the success. On behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Martin County, I offer my sincerest and heartfelt Thank you for your contribution. We will be placing an advertisement in Luminaries extending our appreciation to all the businesses that were so amazing in their outreach for our organization. please accept this small memento of our appreciation for your generosity."
