Second prize, a $1,000 gift certificate for dry cleaning and laundry from Holiday Cleaners, goes to Cardon Outreach. The third-place prize winner receives a $500 gift card from Super 1 Foods and goes to Vonya Traylor.
The fourth place prize is a Mayo Corner Chair from Lafferty’s Home Center and was won by Billy G. Moon. And the fifth-place prize is a set of 18 ct. Tacori Smoky Quartz Earrings from Alexander’s Jewelers and was won by Michelle Burks.
Proceeds from previous duck races have helped build the Pediatric Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of CHRISTUS St. Michael, benefited area cancer patients, purchased a patient transport van, and more.
