Proud To Sponsor The Great Dam Duck Drop 2016

Ask any local, and they'll tell you that one of the best parts about living at the Lake of the Ozarks (besides getting year-round access to all of the great attractions our area has to offer) is being a part of such a generous, conscientious community. There are countless events held all year long designed to help locals in need, and community members go above and beyond to support these great events. This year, First Bank of the Lake is proud to be a sponsor of one of these awesome events: The Great Dam Duck Drop.

The Great Dam Duck Drop is a two-part annual event held every year on the first Friday and Saturday of August. Friday's primary activity is a golf tournament featuring a wide variety of special contests and prizes designed to engage players with a wide range of skill levels. Saturday's activities include a Family Fun Zone perfect for families with children of all ages and, of course, the famous "Duck Drop" itself.

Proceeds from the Great Dam Duck Drop benefit a wide variety of local charity organizations that, in turn, help local kids in need. Specifically, proceeds will benefit:
  • Lake Area Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • Ozark Coast Kiwanis
  • Kids Harbor
  • Citizens Against Domestic Violence
  • The Food Pantry
  • Wonderland Camp
  • And More
