Annual fundraiser raises money for music therapy program

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The hospital hopes to raise $10,000 for the program during the Duck Dash fundraiser, which is sponsored by Quick Quack Car Wash each year.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Duck Dash fundraiser for the Child Life program at Sutter Children’s Center took place on Aug. 29 at Raging Waters, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The event is sponsored by Quick Quack Car Wash each year, stated the article, and the hospital hopes to raise $10,000 for the program.

The donations raised will be used for the construction of Sophie’s place, “a high-tech music therapy room at the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center,” continued the article.

Those who attended the event paid $15 per pair of ducks, which are specially weighted and designed to stay afloat, reported the article.

“It’s kind of a sight to see — all these yellow ducks being dumped in the water,” said Zack Wandell, event organizer, in the article. “You get a full day at Raging Waters, so that’s always fun. And you’re able to build memories of helping children heal.”

More than 3,200 ducks swam across the 800-foot pool during the event’s race, noted the article, and the top five winners of the Duck Dash received prizes, which included free carwashes at Quick Quack, season tickets to Raging Waters and a $500 gift card.

“The duck is a happy symbol,” stated Julie Murdock, who attended the event with her four sons, in the article. “The kids have to grow up so quickly. They have to deal with hard, heavy things on a regular basis. This is an opportunity for them to let loose and watch these ducks.”
