Uncle Si to headline children's home event

Posted: Updated:

RUSTON, La. (KNOE 8 News) – Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home is excited to announce Alan Robertson will join his uncle Si Robertson in the upcoming fundraising event in Ruston on Friday, May 9. All proceeds of the event will benefit the Children’s Home. Alan and Si will share the stage as they entertain the crowd with stories of faith, family and their life on television’s Duck Dynasty.

Sometimes referred to as the “beardless brother” because he’s the only clean shaven Robertson, Alan joined the cast of Duck Dynasty for the premier of the fourth season, an episode which broke several cable television ratings records. Previously a local pastor for twenty years, Alan joined the show and the family business so he could expand his ministry and share the word of God with a larger audience.

“I’m so excited Alan is joining our event,” said Rick Wheat, CEO of Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home. “Alan and Si make a great team and I expect we’ll all hear an entertaining message about the importance of family and faith. I can’t wait for the event and I’m encouraging everyone to join us for a fun evening.”

The program begins at 6:30pm at Louisiana Tech University’s Thomas Assembly Center. General admission tickets to the program with Alan and Si are $25 for adults, $15 for youth/students, and $12.50 each for groups of 15 or more. They can be purchased at www.LMCH.org, at any location of Community Trust Bank, and at any Stage department store.

There are also tickets remaining to the special “meet and greet” reception with Alan and Si beginning at 5:00pm. The reception includes a professional photo with Si and Alan, silent and live auction, refreshments, and reserved seating at the main event. Tickets to the reception are $275 each or $500 for two.

Sponsorships are still available and companies are encouraged to consider sponsoring the event or purchasing a block of tickets for employees and customers. Current event sponsors include WildHorse Resources, Brennan Dodge, Bank of Ruston, Argent Financial, Princeton Place, Arbor Lakes, Leslie Lakes Retirement Center, Red Peach Radio, The Radio People, Graphic Industries, Children’s Home board member Jeanne Browning, and Aramark.
