Nyemaster's Lucky Duck pays off for YESS

May 5, 2010

DES MOINES - The annual Youth and Emergency Shelter Services Duck Derby charity fundraiser really paid off for the nonprofit organization serving area at-risk youth and families.

Earlier this spring, Nyemaster Goode, an Iowa-based law firm, donated $1000 to the event which purchased 200 rubber ducks to enter in the May 1 race at Jordan Creek Town Center. As luck would have it, one of the firm's ducks took the top prize of $10,000, which was immediately donated to YESS.

"We were really thrilled that (Nyemaster Goode) chose to donate their winnings back to YESS," said YESS Community Development Director Julie Schneider. "It's an incredible gift and the money will be used to help care for more kids who turn to us in a time of crisis."

In return, Nyemaster Goode shareholder Frank Harty said,"As a member of Nyemaster Goode, as well as a resident of the greater Des Moines area, it is an honor and a privilege to support our community and youth in need."
