Donor replaces stolen Duck money

A donor has replaced money stolen from the Shriners Hospital booth Saturday in Riverfront Park. But people who bought Duck Race tickets during Kids Day need new ones.

Curley Werner, of El Katif Shrine, said a Post Falls man who saw a report about the theft on TV came into the Shriners office and wrote a check for $500. The donor was a disabled veteran who asked to remain anonymous.

The thief also took ticket stubs that had the Shriners’ half of the entries purchased for the Duck Race. People who bought the tickets can trade their halves of the stubs for new numbers, Werner said. Call the Shriners at (509) 624-2762.
