Paint-A-Duck contest combines fun with charitable giving

Griffin Pharmacy & Gifts has its ducks lined up for the annual Paint-A-Duck contest.

Participants can purchase a duck kit, then paint and decorate their duck with props. All entries must be dropped off at the pharmacy by April 14.

Paint-A-Duck kits are available at Griffin Pharmacy & Gifts on the ground floor of Griffin Hospital, 130 Division St., Derby, or at the Boutique at the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby.

The Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness receives $1 for every paint kit purchased. Entries will be displayed at the gift store as they are submitted.

Winners in many categories

A panel of judges will decide the winning duck in each of the following categories: Best in show; most creative; best use of props; best theme; best group effort; best senior entry; best children’s entry (age 5 and under); best children’s entry (age 6-10); and best children’s entry (age 11-14).

Winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to Griffin Pharmacy & Gifts.
