Ducks for Bucks makes its return

What: The second annual Ducks for Bucks Niemann-Pick disease benefit Where: Wines of the San Juan, in Turley, N.M.

When: Sat., June 7, from noon-6 p.m.

Durangoans can raise a glass to beating Niemann-Pick disease this week. Wines of the San Juan, located in the bosque of the San Juan River, hosts its annual Ducks for Bucks event from noon-5 p.m. June 5.

The free event includes live music, games, kids activities, a dunking booth, food and refreshments, and the “Dainty Duck Dash” rubber duck race. The show goes beyond good times and good tunes, however. Ducks for Bucks is a fund- and awareness-raiser for Niemann-Pick disease. The event was created in memory of Breann Chavez, who passed away at age 3 from Niemann-Pick. The disease has been described as “childhood Alzheimer’s,” but unlike Alzheimer’s, the disease is always fatal.
