CEO Maria Smith says it’s hoped Saturday’s Ken-Ducky Derby and associated festival will generate about more than¬†$200,000 for the organization, which serves developmentally and physically disabled adults.

“We help them be employed, develop life skills training and to have a life beyond high school, like you and I want, to be involved and to be part of the community,” she said.

At 3:00pm Saturday, some 25-thousand rubber ducks will be dumped into the Ohio River for a race and to be drawn for prizes.
