Ducks take a splash for charity

December 15, 2004

Valdosta - Ready, set, splash.

Over 3,000 duckies took a plunge into the Paradise River at Wild Adventures to raise money for hunger awareness.

The First Annual Great American Duck Derby raised approximately $30,000 for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

"All of the $30,000 that was raised today will be used before the end of the year to help up provide food and programing for the children and elderly through the Christmas holidays, "said Frank Richards/ President of Second Harvest of South Georgia.

Grand prize, a two-year gold key lease on a 2004 Dodge Ram truck from Cass Burch went to Tammy Harrell.
