'Duck Dynasty' stars to appear at Auburn event

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Two stars from the popular reality show "Duck Dynasty" are planning to attend an event in Auburn.

Silas "Uncle Si" Robertson and Alan Robertson, both from the A&E cable show, are among celebrities set to appear at the Aug. 24 event at Auburn Arena, the Opelika-Auburn News reported (http://bit.ly/11QbYRb ).

Tickets for the event are being sold through Youth First and Youth for Christ in Auburn, with proceeds from the event going toward Youth for Christ.

The event will be the first of annual meetings called "Characters of Character" which will invite well-known individuals to Auburn, said Kevin Flannagan, director of both Youth First and Youth for Christ.

Flannagan said even though the event will be held at the Auburn Arena, it will be open to the entire community.

"It's the kind of thing the whole family can come to," Flannagan said.

"Duck Dynasty" chronicles the lives of family members as they operate Duck Commander, which produces duck calls from the company's headquarters in West Monroe, La.

Flannagan said he and his staff are in the process of recruiting other celebrities for the event, but that nothing official has been confirmed yet.
