The Lucky Duck Lottery is the PA Research Foundation’s revamped Art Union program, with funds raised through ticket sales supporting
life-saving cancer research at the PA Hospital Campus.
This new format change will provide more lottery draws throughout the year which equals more chances of winning a fantastic prize!
You might have noticed a change to the name, as well as the branding of our Art Union program. After 12 years of running our Art Union through Australia’s Biggest Duck Race for Cancer Research, we’ve decided to move in a different direction to create a bigger impact with the funds raised through this fundraising initiative.
As a result of this change in direction, we’ve retired our noble fleet of racing ducks and have concluded our annual Duck Race celebration event at West End. We are incredibly grateful of all of the support for Duck Race over the years and have many cherished memories. Thank you to our event partners for supporting Australia’s Biggest Duck Race and helping to roll out 12 editions of Australia’s 'quackiest' river event.
To our community of Duck Race supporters, we thank you for your ongoing support of the PA Research Foundation and invite you to continue supporting cancer research through the new Lucky Duck Lottery.
Just because we aren't continuing with Duck Race, this doesn't mean that we don't still love ducks - hence the new name!
The Lucky Duck Lottery Art Union will be held at least 4 times per year providing even more chances of winning a prize. The lottery draws will have fewer tickets available than our previous Art Union format, significantly increasing your chances of winning a fantastic prize.
More draws + fewer tickets = lots of Lucky Ducks!
The revamped Lucky Duck Lottery will continue to support life-saving cancer research at the PA Hospital Campus.
1 in 2 Australian men and women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85; this is a disease that does not discriminate.
Thanks to support from the Lucky Duck Lottery, we are able to fund research projects which investigate breast, prostate, bladder, skin and head and neck cancer, with a focus on improving patient outcomes through new treatments and better diagnostics.
Whilst cancer survival rates have improved, sadly 31% of patients will not survive five-years post diagnosis; the only way we can lower this
statistic is through new research breakthroughs. Together with your support, we can continue to raise funds for our dedicated medical
