2009 Duck Race for Cancer

rubber ducksI attended the 2009 Duck Race for Cancer at the Pacific Islands Club on Saturday night. The event was a fundraiser for the Marianas March Against Cancer.

Kudos to the Pacific Islands Club for putting together a fun even for a good cause. Double kudos to happy hour at the poolside bar (half-off appetizers, hell yeah!).
