All ducks are on deck for the 24th Annual Rubber Duck Regatta this weekend in Cincinnati, OH! 180,000 of our ducks (yes, you read right, nearly 200k ducks) will be dropped in the Ohio River to raise money for Freestore Foodbank. Freestore Foodbank provides emergency food and services to children and families with an ultimate goal of creating stability and self-reliance for those in crisis. If all ducks are adopted by this Sunday, this will mark the 5th consecutive year the event has raised over $1 million to fight hunger in their community. If that isn’t incredible, we don’t know what is!
To put things in perspective, here is a breakdown of what a duck or flock of ducks does for the organization:
- $5 = One duck and equates to 15 meals
- $25 = “Big Quack” – Five ducks, plus one free and equates to 75 meals
- $50 = “Bob’s Quack Pack” – Ten ducks, plus two free and equates to 150 meals
- $100 – “Flock of Ducks” – Twenty ducks, plus four free and equates to 300 meals
The festivities begin on Sunday, at 2 pm and one lucky duck will win a 2018 Honda Accord and possibly $1 million if their duck is the KEMBA Million Dollar Duck!
