Paducky Derby Sold Out For Today's Race
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - The Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center thanks the public for a record response to this year's Paducky Derby fundraising campaign.

According to their website, supporters adopted all 10,000 of the available rubber ducks by Friday afternoon. Over 1,000 ducks were adopted just since Friday morning.

The sixth annual race is the largest local fundraiser of the year for The Merryman House.

The race is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Noble Park Pond. This year's event is a virtual race, which will be streamed on social media.

All 10,000 ducks will be dumped into the water, and large fans will blow them to the finish line. Three ducks will be plucked from the water to win cash prizes.

The grand prize is $2,500, second place will receive $1,000, and third place will win $500.

All proceeds from the derby will benefit the Merryman House, a non-profit organization that offers both residential and outreach services to support victims of intimate partner abuse and their dependents.
