Quack, quack, quack...it's a call most North Americans, even city slickers now identify as the "duck call". Duck Dynasty and its cast, a red-neck duck hunting Christian family from Louisiana, is the latest craze in reality TV to hit the airwaves. It seems people just can't get enough of the Robertson's and the antics that follow their duck call business.

In a rare opportunity, one of Duck Dynasty's most popular cast members, Jase Robertson, will be travelling to London, Ontario to get up close and personal with ticket holders for the fundraising event, "Duck Dynasty's Call on Farmtown Canada at Budweiser Gardens, October 12, 2013. Jase, who is well known for his ability to speak "duckinese", as well as pester his high-rolling brother and company CEO Willie, agreed to attend the event for a 'lil preachin, a 'lil hunting and a whole lot of fun!

It would seem Farmtown's Christian focus and rural roots is a perfect fit to play host to Robertson, a Godly man himself. Jase and the entire Robertson family are active members of the White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ of West Monroe, Louisiana.

He also uses his popularity to speak about his relationship with God, as he will in London this October. The show which has started in its fourth season on A&E is said to be the No. 1 non-fiction series telecast in cable history. But with fame comes fortune and though promotional posters of the show would have you believe it's Money, Family, Ducks…the Robertson's are said to be the ones who actually cross out “Money” and write in "Faith".

Farmtown Canada is located in Mapleton Ontario and is home to just about every farm animal there is...from horses to goats, lamas and of course, ducks. Founder Kelly Franklin says opening the camp was a calling from God. "While studying social work in Toronto, interning in ministry and raising my son on my own, I fell in love with kids and knew it was something I had to do." Franklin explains the rural camp provides all children, regardless of their background or financial ability, with a fun learning experience in a Christian environment.

The show featuring Robertson will raise much needed funds for the camp. Franklin says since all children are accepted into the camp, she is forced to fundraise so she can offer the camp free of charge or at a reduced rate, while maintaining the camp and feeding and caring for the many animals.

Franklin says tickets to the show are still available. For pricing and information visit: www.budwisergardens.com
