Something quacktastIc is coming to Los Gatos on June 10, 2012 - the Silicon Valley Duck Race! Momma Duck Mishy Balaban will be chairing this family-friendly fundraiser, which will take place at Vasona Park from 11-3 and will benefit El Camino Hospital Los Gatos.
Over the coming months, El Camino Hospital Foundation and partnering “duck buddy” organizations will be selling 15,000 yellow rubber duckies for $5 a piece. Each purchaser will receive “adoption papers” with the identification numbers of his/her ducks. At the appointed hour, all the ducks will splash into Vasona creek and will race downstream. The purchasers of the first 10 ducks to arrive at the finish line will receive fabulous prizes and one lucky duck might even win $1 million. There will be food booths to satisfy every appetite and fun games and activities for children throughout the afternoon. More information about volunteer and sponsorship opportunities will be provided over the coming months. Stay tuned!
