SwedishAmerican Holding "Duck Dynasty" Themed Duck Derby

November 12, 2013

SwedishAmerican is holding a "Duck Dynasty" themed duck derby at 10:30 AM on Thursday, November 14 (Heart Hospital Lobby) to benefit the organization's Employee Disaster Fund and the Page Turner Reading program that is offered to pre-school children in the Rockford area. Over 1,000 ducks are being sold to employees.

SwedishAmerican President and CEO Dr. Bill Gorski will masquerade as Willie Robertson, CEO and resident prankster of Duck Commander on the hit A&E television show, while Paul Logli, president of the Rock River Valley United Way, will appear as family patriarch Phil Robertson. Both men will be blindfolded and wade in the fountain in the Heart Hospital to pick ten lucky ducks. Winners will receive a number of different prizes. The SwedishAmerican Foundation will match the money raised by employees.
