17,000 colorful rubber ducks sailed down the Deschutes River as part of the 22nd Annual Great Drake Park Duck Race on Sunday. The Bend Rotary fundraiser donates the $85,000 raised to nine charities. People buy ducks for $5, for a chance at some big ticket items. All the prizes were donated, so all the money raised, goes to charity. Some of the organizations that benefitted are the Kid’s Center, Bend's Community Center, and the Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon. Organizers says this year's event was the biggest yet.
