Buy a Duck, Feed a Flock

The annual Rubber Duck Regatta, presented by Dawn and benefitting the Freestore Foodbank, takes place Sunday, Sept. 1 during the P&G Riverfest. About 200,000 rubber ducks will fall from the Purple People Bridge to race along the Ohio River — the winning duck’s owner will receive a 2013 Honda Civic Sedan LX and possibly $1 million if their duck is also the Million Dollar Duck. Second place receives $100 from Kroger every week for a year, and five extra winners will receive $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union. One of the biggest fundraisers for the Freestore Foodbank, the Rubber Duck Regatta raised more than $800,000 in 2012, which helped provide 2.5 million meals. Purchase your duck at or 513-929-DUCK (3825) — price is $5 per duck, $25 for six ducks, $50 for 12 ducks, and $100 for 24 ducks.
