‘Faith, family, ducks’

Duck Dynasty star to speak at luncheon

Athens — Individual ticket sales continue for the Hope Springs Water luncheon featuring Duck Dynasty's Missy Robertson on Sept. 14 at the Athens Country Club.

Two ticket options are available. The first will be for the luncheon and talk only for $50. A lucky 25 guests, however, will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with Missy prior to the luncheon in a private reception. Prices for the lunch plus the reception is $100.

After marrying Jase at age 19 and now raising another generation of Robertsons, Missy learned early on that she was going to have to step up her game. She was not raised in a large family, but fitting into the Robertson lifestyle became an easy transition, especially with help from Mrs. Kay.

She also learned that being a Robertson also meant helping with the family business. However, after working with Duck Commander for many years, she is now able to devote much of her time to her passion of vocal music, both singing and volunteering as a music teacher at her children’s school.

She also handles her family’s many activities and tries her best to keep Jase in line. Missy and Jase have been married for 22 years and have three children: Reed (17); Cole (15); and Mia (9).

Missy’s talk, “Faith, Family, and Ducks,” gives her guests an up-close and personal   behind-the-scenes look at Louisiana’s bearded, camouflage-clad millionaires who live out the American dream while staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and Southern roots. Get ready to experience a special brand of Southern know-how and a down-home sense of humor.

Proceeds from the luncheon benefit Hope Springs Water’s clean-water projects. Nearly 1 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean water, many of which are children. In fact, it is estimated that a child dies from a water-borne disease every 15 seconds. Hope Spring’s drilling teams go into these countries and give the gift of health through providing a clean, safe-water source. The charity has wells in Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Belize and Mexico.

Tickets are limited to 300 and are only available online at www.hopespringswater.org. In addition to individual tickets, there are still a few tables available for groups and families. All tickets are tax-deductible and are first-come, first-served.
