PropertyPond Making Splash with Rubber Ducky Derby

Press Release

August 1, 2012

PropertyPond.com, a website to help renters find apartments and homes, is donating a rubber ducky to Make-a-Wish Utah’s Rubber Ducky Derby for each property listed on the site between August 1 and August 15.

“We are so excited to have the opportunity to help make dreams come true for Utah children facing life-threatening medical conditions,” said Lee Payne, PropertyPond.com marketing director. “We hope that Realtors, property managers and landlords will hurry to list as many homes and apartments as possible so that we can make as big of a splash as possible in the derby.”

The Rubber Ducky Derby is an annual fundraising event for Make-a-Wish Utah. Duckies “race” around a lazy river in heats, and the lucky sponsor of the winning ducky wins a 2013 Dutchman Travel Trailer donated by Sierra RV. The event will be held at the Lindon Aquatics Center on August 25. PropertyPond will donate up to 166 duckies for this year’s event.

Each ducky sponsorship raises money to help grant wishes for Utah children between two-and-a-half and 17 years old with a life-threatening medical condition. Ducks can also be sponsored in different flocks and packs at a discounted rate. Visit the Make-A-Wish Utah website at www.utah.wish.org to find more information and sponsor a duck.

“We are really excited that PropertyPond.com is stepping in and bringing awareness to the Rubber Ducky Derby. The efforts of PropertyPond.com combined with the matching grant from Make-A-Wish America will greatly aid us in our mission to grant the wishes of Utah children facing life-threatening medical conditions,” said Autumn Thatcher, Make-A-Wish Utah communications manager.

Unlike many other rental websites, PropertyPond.com employs full time data compliance personnel to monitor data integrity and work with customers to ensure rental advertisements are accurate and up-to-date. While competing rental websites may be dated, or riddled with scam listings, PropertyPond.com weeds out questionable properties before the postings are made public. The website is owned and operated by UtahRealEstate.com.
