Millions tune in each week to see the reality show "Duck Dynasty."

The men are known for their southern accents, long beards, and expertise in ducks calls.

But their show also shares stories of faith and family, and this weekend they're bringing that message to the Twin Cities.

The men will be at Grace Church in Eden Prairie for a fundraiser benefiting two Christian schools in the southwest metro.

Chapel Hill Academy, a K-8 school in Chanhassen, and Southwest Christian High School in Chaska only have about 550 students combined.

"I think what this has taught us is that schools like ours can do something really fun, really exciting, and raise some serious funds to help our organizations," says Dan Beckering of Southwest Christian High School.

Adding to the need for funding, just before the start of the school year, the administrative offices at Chapel Hill were destroyed by fire.

Those offices are now in the lunchroom, the lunchroom is now in the commons area.

If you'd like to go to the benefit, it starts at 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets range in price from $30 to $100. VIP tickets cost $250.
