It’s almost time to dump the ducks in Mill Creek. Tickets are on sale now for 17th annual Baker Boyer Ducky Derby, which raises funds for event sponsor Walla Walla Exchange Club Foundation.
Quick as a flash, the rubber duckies will get dunked at 2 p.m. on May 17 at Walla Walla Community College.
Other events happening there are the Relay for Hope Walk & 5K from 8:30-11 a.m.; Kid’s Olympics, 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.; and the Columbia REA Family Fun Festival, 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
The fastest duck will win the grand prize, $10,000 or a 2014 Toyota Tacoma 4x2 pickup truck from McCurley Integrity Toyota and Exchange Club Foundation.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds stay in the community, funding Exchange Club efforts to enhance the lives of children and young people.
At least 50 percent of the event’s net proceeds go directly to child abuse prevention efforts.
