March 23, 2019 – Adopt your ducks today for the chance to win great prizes

Quick Quack Car Wash and The Children’s Discovery Museum Present: The All-American Discovery Duck Pluck. The fun-filled day benefits the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert. Adopted Ducks will be plucked on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at The River at Rancho Mirage for the opportunity to win great prizes.

It will be quite a sight, as thousands of rubber duckies will float about at The River at Rancho Mirage. Prior to their dip at The River, individuals and businesses can adopt each of the ducks for a donation benefiting the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert. During the event on March 23, many of the bath-time toys will be randomly “plucked” from the water, and associated with a prize for its adoptive family. During the Discovery Duck Pluck, The River at Rancho Mirage will host a variety of children’s activities and food will be available for purchase.

“People loved the Discovery Duck Pluck at The River at Rancho Mirage, so we are excited to bring it back,” said CEO Carol E. Scott. “It’s a fun activity and brings awareness about CDMOD and all that we have for children from infant to middle school.”

Ducks plucked out of the water at The River at Rancho Mirage will equate to prizes from CDMOD, The Archer Hotel, The Vagabond Inn, Miracle Springs Resort and Spa, BIGHORN Golf Course, McCallum Theatre, Desert Adventures, The Living Desert, Palm Canyon Theatre, Castelli’s Ristorante, Las Casuelas Nuevas, Kaiser Family of Restaurants, Escape Games at The River, Hospitality Dental, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa, Mission Hills Country Club, All About Massage, Ben and Jerry’s, and many other generous donors.
