East Side vs. West Side vs. Northern Kentucky: The Freestore Foodbank’s Rubber Duck Regatta Duck Sales Challenge – this Saturday, Aug. 17, 12-2:30 p.m., at three locations: Delhi Kroger (5080 Delhi Avenue), Hyde Park Kroger (3760 Paxton Avenue) and Newport Kroger (130 Pavilion Parkway).
Enjoy a chance to win a great prize and help the Freestore Foodbank at the same time!
As one my favorites events is the “Rubber Duck Regatta“ where 100,000+ bright yellow ducks soar (actually they are dumped) off the “Purple People Bridge” during downtown Labor Day festivities. This year the ducks are leaping at 3pm on Sunday, August 31st
All the proceeds benefit the Freestore Foodbank who distributes over 12 million pounds of food each year through a dedicated network of over 325 local Member Agencies.
A $5 donation buys a numbered duck and if your rubber ducky floats across the finish line first- you win a car. If you have a few extra dollars $25 buys 6 ducks. So in addition to helping others- you get the opportunity to cheer on your duck in the race- a win/win.
