YESS Duck Derby
5/2/2015 12:00:00 PM
101 Jordan Creek Pkwy, West Des Moines
The YESS Duck Derby, presented by Des Moines Plastic Surgery, is back for its 8th year and it is sure to be the most quack-tastic one yet! This family-fun event quacks up the young and young at heart while supporting our community’s most vulnerable children. All proceeds support children who find safety and care at Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS), Iowa’s largest youth shelter.
The fun starts at Noon on Saturday, May 2nd when you and your friends and family can enjoy free entertainment, kids' activities, and food samples from Jordan Creek-area restaurants. At 2:00pm, thousands of yellow rubber ducks will race through the lake at Jordan Creek Town Center, all vying to cross the finish line first and be named Top Duck. If your duck is among the first 10 to cross the finish line, you will go home with one of the fantastic prizes, including $10,000!
Whether you can make it on race day or not, it’s only $5 to “adopt a duck” and cheer it on to victory. The biggest winners, however, are the children at YESS. One-hundred percent of your duck adoption benefits children who have experienced abuse, neglect, homelessness, poverty or who otherwise need safety and care. Each duck adopted during the YESS Duck Derby will help children find safety and care.
Make-A-Wish Iowa's mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A wish is granted every other day in the state of Iowa.
Reserve your tickets today for the 22nd annual Make-A-Wish Iowa Des Moines Gala. Guests will enjoy dinner, live and silent auction, and entertainment featuring local Wish kids. This special event will take place on May 2, 2015 at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in the Bishop Ballroom.
Please mark your calendar and join your friends and neighbors in supporting Make-A-Wish Iowa.
