Jindal, Robertson take plunge for adoption
BATON ROUGE - The women behind two of Louisiana's most famous husbands will step to the forefront Friday and off a 24-story building in Baton Rouge.
Supriya Jindal and Korie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" will rappel 308 feet down the side of One America Place around 1 p.m. to help raise awareness for Louisiana Family Forum's "Over the Edge for Adoption" campaign.
The women are taking the plunge to help more than 300 adoptable children in the state's foster program. LSU Coach Les Miles took the descent last May.
The women and their husbands, Bobby Jindal and Willie Robertson, met in February when the governor honored Willie Robertson, CEO of Duck Commander and star of the reality television show, with the inaugural Governor's Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
