Food Bank holds duck race

March 15, 2007

Lowndes County -- Thursday, 10,000 rubber ducks were dumped into Paradise River at Wild Adventures to raise money for the Second Harvest Food Bank. The money helps fund the local Kids Cafes.

The derby winner, Charles McDowell, will receive a 2007 GMC Sierra Truck from Bosch Automotive.

"The money that we were able to raise this year is going to the operations of our programs through the Valdosta Food Bank and the Kids Kitchen and our many food programs that we provide across South Georgia," said Frank Richard of Second Harvest.

This year's Duck Derby raised $35,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank.
