'Duck Dynasty' star speaks at Bainbridge event

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Some Reality TV stars were in Bainbridge Sunday night to help raise money for Grace Christian Academy.  More than a thousand people showed up for the event at the Bainbridge State College Student Wellness Center. 

Jason "Jase" and Missy Robertson from A&E's Duck Dynasty were at the event. The show documents the lives of the Louisiana family who became wealthy through their Duck Commander business. Jason Robertson shared stories and talked about the impact God has had on their lives.

"I'm very excited about the community coming out to support the event. We're a pretty small Christian school, but we've got a lot of people in the community that support us, that really support Jason and Missy.  And we've come together to raise a lot of money for our school and we're very, very excited," said Michael Smith, the Grace Christian Academy foundation board member.

The event was called "The Follow." Organizers hope to hold similar events every year.
