Alden Quacks For a Cause

Over $13,000 was raised at the 3rd Alden of Waterford Duck Race benefiting the Leukemia Research Foundation. Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner Naperville Mayor A. George Pradel Oswego Village President Brian LeClercq & Senator Linda Holmes joined attendees

Oct. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Over $13,000 was raised at the 3rd Annual Alden of Waterford Duck Race benefiting the Donald Davidson-Alan Brin Memorial Chapter of the Leukemia Research Foundation. Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner, Naperville Mayor A. George Pradel, Oswego Village President Brian LeClercq and Senator Linda Holmes joined over 300 attendees at the event.  

Participants enjoyed an hour-long performance by the Legacy Girls, a full spread of appetizers with a cocktail hour, children’s games, raffles with prizes and live entertainment by WERV 95.9 FM The River.

Rubber ducks were sold for $5 each. The Duck Race started at 5 p.m. with a parade lead by the National Guard and members of the Fox Valley Marines. National Guardsmen provided the ducks with a personal escort to the pond, while the Aurora Fire Department used a fire hose to assist the rubber ducks in racing across the Alden of Waterford pond. The owner of the winning duck won $500 cash.

“Each year, we hope the Duck Race can help someone who has been diagnosed with leukemia,” says Nora O’Gorman, administrator.
