The “buy-a-duck” email reminder arrived poking me to buy some ducks. It’s a great way to help your friends and neighbors living in our community.
The 22nd Annual Rubber Duck Regatta takes place at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 4 prior to the Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks. As many as 200,000 ducks will soar from the Purple People Bridge and swim in the Ohio River near the Serpentine Wall. .
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.
