So you've heard of "Duck Dynasty", but a "duck emergency"?
Two days remain until the annual "Duck Pluck" and Leadership Tomorrow in Grand Island needs help.
They're trying to adopt more ducks to raise funds for youth and adult leadership programs in Hall County.
Brenda Branstiter said, "There is still time. They can actually adopt a duck the morning of the event, on Saturday at 10:30."
Ducks can be adopted one at a time or in a quack pack. If your duck is plucked, you could win thousands in cash.
Ducks may be adopted for $5 a duck, a Quack Pack of 6 ducks for $25, a Flock of 13 ducks for $50, or a Max Pack of ducks of 28 for $100.
Saturday, September 7, 2013 the 11th Roy's Grand/Leadership Tomorrow Duck Pluck will be held at the Grand Island YMCA.
There will be a free Kids Festival beginning at 10:30 am followed by the Duck Pluck at 12:00 pm.
Anyone wishing to adopt a duck can do so by stopping at the Grand Island Chamber of Commerce before 5:00pm Friday, September 6th. Ducks are also available at Roy's Grand and the Grand Island Independent.
