'Duck Dynasty' Show In April Is Canceled

Free Will Baptist Family Ministries announced Monday that the scheduled April 12, 2014, event with "Duck Dynasty" star and Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson at Viking Hall Civic Center in Bristol has been canceled.

The show had originally been scheduled for Oct. 19, and had been rescheduled for Saturday, April 12, as the result of a scheduling conflict.

The event was part of a fundraiser to benefit Family Ministries' "School Expansion Project."

Derek Bell, director of development for Family Ministries, said Monday in a news release:

"Our greatest responsibility is to the young people we serve. Therefore, we feel that in light of the recent news that the stars of the show 'Duck Dynasty' are partnering with Trinchero Family Estates to launch Duck Commander Wines, to continue with this event would send mixed messages to the young people who go through our Adolescent Drug and Alcohol program."

Bell went on to say in the news release that, "Our message must be consistent. The lives of those children may well hang in the balance.

"We certainly apologize to the people who have already purchased tickets, and pray they understand our position."

Family Ministries is a Christian non-profit organization that takes care of at-risk children.

As part of that care, approximately half of the children whom Family Ministries serves go through its Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Program.

Tickets sold will be refunded by Viking Hall Civic Center and at

Some persons have already expressed their desire to continue their support through donations to this "School Expansion Project," the news release said.

Family Ministries, in the news release, thanked Bass Pro Shops, Johnson Commercial Development and The Pinnacle for their willingness to be premier sponsors for this event.

Proceeds would have benefited Family Ministries' planned 10,000-square-foot expansion to provide updated classroom space and counseling facilities for the children that Family Ministries serves.

The school expansion project broke ground in October and has a scheduled completion date of summer 2014.

To donate or for more information about Family Ministries, please contact Derek Bell, Director of Development, at 423/276-8877 or (
