Valdosta - A South Georgia man has a new truck for two years, for just $5.00!

Tony Yearby was the grand prize winner in the Valdosta Food Bank's Derby Duck Race Thursday. About 4,000 ducks set sail down Paradise River at Wild Adventures and Yearby's duck came in first.

He'll get to drive this Dodge Ram free of charge for two years, and it only cost him $5.00 to sponsor his duck!

The campaign raised about $50,000 for the food bank. "That's going to provide us with millions of meals. Towards the end of the year, its going to help us get through the hard times this winter and get us up to Thanksgiving when we start raising funds for our Thanksgiving drives," said Frank Richards, Food Bank Director.

Other race winners walked away with free vacations, jewelry, and all sorts of gift certificates.
