Stars of "Duck Dynasty" visits Knoxville to help raise money for a local organization.


Si and Alan Robertson, stars of the A&E television show "Duck Dynasty", stopped at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium Friday to help raise money for the Knoxville Breakfast Rotary Club.

"It's always great to support rotary clubs around the county. Anybody who works in charitable organizations we're behind," said Alan.

"Our club has adopted Bluegrass Elementary School. When we started the year we've mulched all of their grounds, we ended up rebuilding their amphitheater. We also work on World Rotary Day, where we work on an inner-city school. We work Free Flu Shots Saturday, where we help with the shots and things like that," said Rotarian Greg Maciolek.

The Knoxville Breakfast Rotary Club also contributes to the Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition.

Knoxville is among the TV show's top markets. Si and Alan Robertson took pictures with many of their biggest fans before talking to them about faith, family, and duck.

"Obviously faith is a big part of our lives. Family is a huge part because we get together every week on national television. And we do like to kill ducks," said Alan Robertson.

Tickets for the event ranged in price from $59 to $131.
