MASON, OH (FOX19) - Kings Island has turned pink in support of breast cancer awareness. FOX19's Frank Marzullo and Sheila Gray are live at Kings Island for the FOX19 Morning News this morning.

The amusement park has raised over $100,000 through the sale of pink rubber ducks.

The ducks are $5 a piece or five for $20 and can be purchased at the park or the Kings Island website.

The ducks purchased online are tossed into the Royal Fountains on International Street by members of the Kings Island staff. Guests who buy their ducks at the park can toss the duck into the fountain themselves. More than 21,000 ducks are currently in the fountain.

On August 21, one duck will be randomly plucked from the fountains and the owner of that duck will win a new 2010 Toyota Yaris courtesy of Joseph Toyota of Cincinnati. 

The goal is to raise $200,000 by Saturday, August 21. Proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
