Valdosta - Do you want to win a truck and help a charity at the same time?

Several thousand rubber duckies will race down Paradise River at Wild Adventures Thursday for the First Annual Duck Dreby.

America's Second Harvest Food Bank is sponsoring the event and hopes to raise $100,000 for it's local programs.

First prize is a leased truck from Cass Burch. Other prizes include a shopping spree and cruise.

"All the proceeds are benefiting the Food Bank and all of our programs here at Americas Second Harvest," said Matthew Thompson, Vice President of Programming.

You can still adopt a duck at Chick-Fil-A on St. Augustine Road in Valdosta or at the Food Bank on Harbin Circle.
