Win Fabulous Prizes - Enter a Ducky in the Race
Here is how the race works. When making a donation, you will be given a numbered ticket. A rubber Ducky is entered into the Ducky Race with the number on your ticket affixed to the bottom of the Ducky. Donations are $5.00 for one ticket and $20.00 for five tickets. One ticket -- one ducky.
All the Duckies are dumped into Plum Creek and they race a half mile to the finish line. The first three Duckies earn cash prize money. In addition, the first and second place numbers have a chance to earn fabulous additional prizes.
