Buy a duck for Rubber Duck Regatta for Freestore Foodbank - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

Still time to 'buy a duck, feed a child'

There's still time to buy a rubber duck to benefit the Freestore Foodbank during the annual Rubber Duck Regatta.

As many as 150,000 ducks will race down the Ohio River during Riverfest on Sunday, Sept. 2.

Individuals may purchase ducks until 2:30 p.m. the day of the race.  Ducks are available online at www.rubberduckregatta.com or by phone at 513-92-DUCK and all KEMBA Credit Union locations (until 5:30 p.m. Friday) and Kroger stores (until 11:59 p.m. Friday).

Ducks will also be available for purchase at Riverfest. Just look for the giant inflatable ducks on both sides of the river.

Ducks are $5 each or six for $25.

The owner of the winning duck will win a brand new 2012 Honda Civic LX Sedan and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the million dollar duck. The owner of the second place duck will receive a year's worth of groceries from Kroger ($100 per week) and five additional runners-up will win $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union.

Proceeds from the Rubber Duck Regatta benefit the Freestore Foodbank. It's their largest fundraiser.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
