Duck Dynasty themed fundraiser for SwedishAmerican - – Rockford’s News Leader

Duck Dynasty themed fundraiser for SwedishAmerican


Swedish American Health System and the United Way host an annual Duck Derby.

The "Duck Dynasty" theme was in force for the event that benefits Swedish American's employee disaster fund and the page turner reading program for Rockford area preschoolers. 10 lucky ducks in all were picked.

"Very enthusiastic. They make this fun. Obviously, we wouldn't dress up like this if it were not for a good cause. And we just hope our children become literate, so they won't end up looking like this," laughed Paul "Phil" Logli, one of the Duck Derby duck pickers

The winners receive prizes and the Swedish American Foundation will match money raised by employees.
