WINTHROP - The Winthrop Duck Race will have a noon start on Sept. 2.
The 15th annual fundraiser by the Winthrop Kiwanis club benefits Methow Valley children.
It costs $2 to get a duck in the race. The plastic ducks hit the water at the Chewuch Bridge and cross the finish line at the East Winthrop Bridge. Cash prizes are $500 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third. Need not be present to win.
Duck raffle tickets can be purchased from any Winthrop Kiwanis member or Tenderfoot in Winthrop, Ulrich’s Pharmacy in Twisp and the Carlton General Store.
