Sequim woman wins 2014 Duck Derby's top prize SLIDESHOW

Rena Keith of Sequim bought just one $5 ticket to this year's duck derby.

One duck is all it takes.

Keith's was the first of 30,000 ducks plucked from the pond at Port Angeles' Lincoln Park pond Sunday at the 2014 Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby, earning her a 2014 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck or a Toyota Corolla provided by Wilder Toyota.

Sequim resident swept the top three prizes Sunday, with Joe Watkins winning $1,000 in cash as the second prize and Pam Busch won $500 in cash for the third prize, both prizes coming from 7 Cedars Casino.

A total of 45 ducks won prizes from a pool valued at more than $25,000.

The derby raises money for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation and Sequim Rotary Club.
