The Freestore Foodbank celebrated the 21st Annual Rubber Duck Regatta Sunday during Riverfest with more than 160,000 rubber ducks swimming in the Ohio River.
The owner of the first prize duck was Rob Morwood of Lebanon, Ohio and won a 2016 Honda HR-V courtesy of Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers. The second prize winner was Dennis Wander of Colerain Township who won $5,200 in groceries from Kroger.
Terry Lindquist of Liberty Township, Marian Diana of Anderson Township, Betty Owen of Alexandria, Jenni Eilers of Sycamore Township and Shannon Molleo of Loveland were the winners of $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union.
The Freestore Foodbank will announce how much was raised through the event during a prize presentation at the Oakley Kroger store opening at 8 a.m. on Thursday.
Rubber Duck Regatta helps to kick-off Hunger Action Month when the Feeding America food banks unite to urge communities to take action throughout September to help fight hunger in America.
