ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The winner of this year's Rotary Duck Race received the keys to her new wheels on Wednesday.
Bonnie Parish, a volunteer for CASA, won a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic from Clint Newell Motors.
Newell says being able to help fight child abuse is what this is all about and while parish agrees, she's so thankful. Clint Newell told KPIC News that he likes to be able to support such a good cause. "It's just nice to be able to continue to support the project and what all the Rotary Duck Race funds in our community," he said. "They do a great job."
Bonnie was not only grateful for the things the Duck Race supports, but for her new ride as well. "I think it's just a wonderful thing that you do, and I'm happy you picked out this cute little red car," she said.
This year's race raised over $92,000 to help fight child abuse, while producing nearly 10,000 entries in the race.
The money raised goes to several different agencies in the area that help to fight child abuse and neglect.
