A rubber duck ticket turned into a cherry red Camaro for Alicia Shum.

Shum sponsored the fastest duck on the Finley River in the 2019 Sertoma Duck Race June 22, at Finley River Park in Ozark. Her first place prize is a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro from Ozark Chevrolet.

Second place winner Meranda Appleberry wins a prize of $2,000 worth of gasoline from Signal.

The Sertoma Duck Race is organized annually by the Christian County Children’s Charities (CCCC) Sertoma Club. A total of 15 duck race participants received more than $40,000 worth of prizes.

The 2019 Duck Race benefits Care to Learn Ozark and Dogwood Ranch, which provides equine-assisted therapy and counseling services. The Children’s Smile Center Balloon Glow, held annually on the Friday night before the Duck Race, is the largest fundraiser each year for Children’s Smile Center. The organization provides dental care to children in low-income families served by MoHealthNet, or Medicaid. Children’s Smile Center has clinics in Ozark, Branson West and Aurora.

Festival-goers enjoyed food, games, carnival rides for kids and concerts on both nights of the Sertoma Duck Race Festival.
