The unique fundraiser is a raffle.  Michelle Buria, the president of the club, said you adopt a duck for five dollars and there are 5,000 of them.  

On Thursday, they'll dump them in the slip by Pier B and then winners will be plucked and can win up to $3,000. 

This is a new fundraiser for the club and they were inspired by fundraisers other communities have done that are fun for kids. 

"We looked at, 'What is a pending issue for kids in our community?' and that's when we went out and solicited some information," Buria said.  "We decided we were going to partner with the Boys and Girls Club and their Mental Health Access program." 

All of the prizes are cash prizes, so you don't have to be present to win.  

You can adopt a duck at duluthrotaryduckpluck.com.

The Duck Pluck is on Thursday from 5-8:30 p.m. at Pier B Resort.
