Bob Edwards

During his 17-year tenure as a FSFB Board member, Bob has served as Chairman of the Board and Development Vice Chair. He also is the “founding father” of the extraordinarily successful annual FSFB Rubber Duck Regatta fundraising event. Through his tireless devotion and hands-on dedication, Bob has built the Duck Regatta into the largest in the country and the second largest in the world. In 2007, the 13th year, 85,000 ducks were “adopted” and $400,000 was cleared for the FreestoreFoodbank. Bob works yearround to make the Rubber Duck Regatta bigger and better every year and, through his never-ending efforts, more than $3 million has been raised by this event for the FreestoreFoodbank which serves a population of more than 160,000 low-income persons in a 20-county region. In 2002, Bob received the “Bengals Community Quarterback Award” for his outstanding volunteer service to the FreestoreFoodbank. This is a league-wide volunteer recognition program that awarded $10,000 to the FreestoreFoodbank on Bob’s behalf.
