12th Annual Duck Classic – A Record Breaking Year
What began 12 years ago as an idea, has now grown into the largest and most successful outdoor oriented fundraiser in the region. The 12th annual NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation Duck Classic experienced a record breaking year – raising $512,000, drawing in a crowd of approximately 1600 people from a 10 state area and gaining national recognition from corporate sponsors such as Avery, Drake, and UnderArmour.

This year’s banquet, held December 4th at the NEA District Fairgrounds, featured the traditional live and silent auctions, raffles, a barbeque dinner, and even more chances than ever for attendees to win cash and prizes. On the morning of Friday, December 5th, the pre-registered teams participated in a competitive duck hunt involving strategy and a scoring system. Hunters were paired with landowners/hosts that showcased Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas as a premier duck hunting destination.

Following the hunt, the teams validated their scores at an official duck scoring and awards event held at sponsor location DNW Outdoors Archery Range. The winning team, “Jorge’s Revenge”, hunted on land owned and guided by Kody Riggan. Team “Med South/NEA Xray” came in second with landowner Greg Baltz and Team “Cammack Commanders” came in third with landowner Adam Boothe.

“Each year, Duck Classic relies on the countless volunteer hours, sponsors, landowners, hunters and the support of our community to be successful and this year is no different.” said Darrell King, CEO of NEA Baptist Clinic, “It is a blessing to see how this event has grown and continues to bring the community together to support the programs of our foundation.”

Feedback from hunters, landowners, and local businessmen included, “Great event, great cause; love that the money stays local, looking forward to next year; and Duck Classic was phenomenal!” One hunter, who has participated in Duck Classic for 12 years, stated that it was the best hunt yet.

Proceeds from Duck Classic support the programs of NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation, all of which are free to the community. NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation has a mission to help change lives through the programs and services it supports in Northeast Arkansas. It accomplishes this through five programs, each of which is free to participants: Medicine Assistance Program, HopeCircle, ShareHope, Center for Healthy Children, and Wellness Works.
