Are You Ready for the Rubber Duck Regatta?

Put a smile on your face and help the Freestore Foodbank at the same time!

Rubber Duck Regatta 2011

Thankfully a note arrived via snail mail reminding me to purchase the bright yellow rubber ducks.  It’s a great way to help your friends and neighbors living in our community.

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, September 4th.

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.

Good luck- I’m pretty sure the winning yellow rubber duck(s) has my name on it!
