Duck-A-Thon

DUCK-A-THON

At 1,850 feet, the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is one of the longest piers on the West Coast. The pier symbolizes the heart of Huntington Beach and is the most photographed spot in town. The city and pier came into existence together in 1904. Thanks to historic surfing demonstrations, this landmark is integral to the Huntington Beach surfing lore.

The three-day event raises much needed funds for AltaMed Medical and Dental Group – Huntington Beach, where thousands of uninsured and medically underserved patients are treated every year.

Wine Tasting

We kick off this amazing weekend with our Food and Wine Tasting reception by the sea. Come enjoy food and wine from local restaurants/businesses. There will also be auction items available for purchase.

List of participating restaurants and businesses coming soon!

We are currently accepting auction item donations. Gifts such as vacation homes, event tickets, wine, unique experiences, and anything else that could be auctioned would be immensely helpful to our event fundraising efforts. Donations provided are also tax-deductible!

Corporate Duck Race

The Corporate Duck Race happens on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. These ducks are much larger than the standard baby ducks. Sponsored by businesses, organizations, and individuals, Corporate Ducks compete for the coveted Golden Duck Traveling Trophy. Each year, a new winner proudly displays this trophy at a location of their discretion. If you’d like, you can even choose to display it at AltaMed Medical and Dental Group – Huntington Beach!
