CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- Six stars of A&E’s popular "Duck Dynasty" show will be coming to Charleston Feb. 22 to help raise money for a youth-led ministry program.

The event, Dare to be a Duck. Take a Stand., will be held at the Charleston Civic Center and features “Uncle Si” Robertson, “Miss Kay” Robertson, Korie Robertson, Alan Robertson, Sadie Robertson, John Luke Robertson and special guest Chrys Howard, the mother of Korie and grandmother of Sadie and John Luke, and her husband Alan, according to a news release about the event.

Organizers said the event will benefit the West Virginia Chapter of Youth Commission International (YCI).

"Duck Dynasty" is the rage right now. Si Robertson's current book, “Si-cology 1,” is a New York Times bestseller, and he is often referred to as the zany uncle of the family. “Miss Kay” is the revered family matriarch and what she says goes. Alan is the oldest son of Phil Robertson, the Duck Commander. Korie Robertson is the wife and business partner of Willie Robertson. Their son, John Luke, and daughter, Sadie, will also be making the trip.

West Virginia’s Five Star Chevy Dealers is the presenting sponsor of the Dare to be a Duck event.

“Duck Dynasty is one of the most watched programs on TV and the show has a very loyal audience, many of them here in West Virginia,” said Joey Holland, chairman of the event. “We are very excited that Si, Kay, Korie and the kids will help us raise money for a very important cause.”

Duck Dynasty has broken several ratings records on A&E and cable television. The fourth season premiere drew nearly 12 million viewers, the most watched non-fiction cable series in history.

Tickets went on sale Monday and can be purchased at the Charleston Civic Center Box Office or through Ticketmaster for $20, $35, $50 and $65. Group discounts are available by calling the Civic Center at 1-304-345-SHOW.

Proceeds from the event will help expand Youth Commission International clubs in the Mountain State.

Dennis Williams, president and chief executive officer of the youth commission, said the organization helps middle and high school students start and maintain Christian clubs that meet on their school campuses.

Williams said all YCI clubs are student-led. He said there are currently 12 clubs in West Virginia, they are located in Boone, Logan and Kanawha counties, and the organization is looking to expand to other counties in the state.
