Event organizers hope to raise as much as $30K for hospital
The cost to purchase a ticket for the Yampa River Rubber Ducky Race - $10 - hasn't changed since its first year in 1988. This year, they hope to raise $20,000 to $30,000 by selling more than 2,000 rubber duckies for the 10 a.m. Saturday race down the Yampa, said Sandie Ihlenfeldt, an Auxiliary member.
