5 Bucks for a Duck

The Not-to-be-Forgotten Foundation, a charity that helps seniors, wants you to adopt a duck to race against other ducks in the Pennsylvania Ducky Derby.

Why? Well, because this month is Older American Month and the adoptions will help seniors with bills, heating, needs and wishes.

Adopting one duck for $5 will help heat a senior home for more than eight hours. Six ducks will run you $25, but will heat a home for a day and half. If you're feeling really generous. Throw up $50 and that'll buy three days worth of warmth for a senior who simply needs the help.

The adopted yellow duckies will be tagged and dropped into the Delaware at Governor Printz Park in Essington. The winning ducks will win their "parents" prizes.

The big race takes place this Saturday, May 16 at 1 p.m. You don't have to be present to claim you're prize if your baby wins -- the Foundation will contact you.
