It's that time of year, 'adopt' your duck today

The Ducks on the Ohio fundraiser is on the calendar again. 

From now until August 3, you can "adopt" a duck for $5, and if your duck is the first to finish the Ohio River race, you could win $10,000.

Organizers are hoping to sell at least $20,000 worth of ducks with the proceeds going to Evansville's Goodwill Family Center. 

"This is crucial to the whole program. If we don't have the money to operate the program, we can't serve these people and we have a 87 percent success rate," said Judi Early with Goodwill.

You can buy your duck at any Fifth Third Bank branch, Schnucks Grocery or Evansville Federal Credit Union.

The race is set for 2:00 p.m. on August 3 at Dress Plaza in Downtown Evansville.
