General Information: The 7th Annual YESS Duck Derby is a premier fundraiser in Central Iowa benefitting Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS), Iowa’s one-of-a-kind emergency youth shelter, providing around-the-clock shelter and crisis care for children, newborn to age 17. The Duck Derby is a family-fun event that quacks up the young and young at heart.
Imagine 45,000 rubber ducks being launched into the lake at Jordan Creek Town Center, racing across the waterway toward the finish line. Central Iowans are invited to “Adopt a Duck” for $5 and cheer on their little fowl friend on Race Day. The first 10 Lucky Ducks to cross the finish line win fabulous prizes. One Lucky Duck will walk away with the event’s $10,000 Grand Prize! Each year, thousands of YESS supporters gather lakeside to cheer on their ducks and join in on the fun of family-friendly activities, entertainment, food samples, sponsor booths, and more. Best of all, YESS is the biggest winner, generating much-needed awareness for the agency and the complex issues facing youth in our community
