A popular fundraising event is this weekend; it’s the "Great Drake Park Duck Race" on Sunday. During the past 21 years the Duck Race has raised about $850,000 for local charities. Kyle Frick with Mid Oregon Credit Union says last year they raised about $60,000 for the Rotary Clubs in Bend. "We put that money out to the different charities here in Bend; Boys and Girls Club, Bend Community Center, there's a whole group of causes that are supported with this money. So it's really a great cause." The festivities take place from 11 to 4 in Drake Park in downtown Bend. There's also a free kid's race at noon.
