|23rd Annual Great Black Hills Duck Race|

All money raised from the race will stay right here in the Black Hills to fund medical equipment and services to help ill and injured children in the area. The Rapid City Regional Hospital Foundation says things shaped up well with fundraising right on par with last year's event.
Betty Quasney of the RCRH Foundation says, "We are close to being about where we were last year at this time. We had 1400 ducks when we started this morning. We sold quite a few, I don't know what the exact number is right now, but we'll probably raise a little over $95,000 this year. We have 42 prizes. Our top prize is $5,000 sponsored by McDonald's with a chance to win $1-million from Med 5 Federal Credit Union."
And we have results from Sunday afternoon's race. Deb Bestgen of Rapid City took the top prize of $5-thousand dollars with Darlyce Bollwerk and Joanne O'Brien taking home $3-thousand and $25-hundred dollars respectively.
