Duck Dynasty's Uncle Si stops in Jackson for worthy cause

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

One of the most memorable characters from the hit TV show Duck Dynasty made a stop in the Capital City this weekend.

Uncle Si Robertson and Martin came to the Mississippi Coliseum Saturday night for a question-and-answer session with fans from the show.

They did so to raise money for Homes of Hope for Children, a privately funded Christian children's home in Purvis. 

"This is an opportunity for us to let people know about the mission of Homes of Hope for Children, which is to serve hurting kids right here in the state of Mississippi; To love them, protect them, to give them a safe home, and a lot of times we fight battles for them to get them out of harm's way," said Michael Garrett, Executive Director of Homes of Hope For Children.

Organizers at the event also sold autographed posters and held auctions to raise money for the cause. 

 They even had a book signing for Duck Dynasty fans.

    Melissa Gregory spends her sunny days outdoors feeding ducks near the Lake Charles Veterans Memorial Park. "It's perfect conditions," said Gregory about the sunny day because it helps her relax and get rid of stress, but lately with all the rain she's been feeling stressed. "I feel kind of cooped up and I feel like I can't go outside, and I have to hide under the roof or stay in the house or hide under the umbrella," she said.
