Fishing for an Excellent Cause, The St. Jude Foundation

During the weekend of May 3rd and 4th, I will be fishing in the 10th Anniversary Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic. This two day event takes place on the Mississippi River pools 4 and 5, in Wabasha, MN. I am very excited to fish this particular event, not just because it’s my first tournament of the season, but more importantly I’ll have the opportunity to fish for such a great cause. I get much pleasure being able to chase my childhood dream, that it hurts to think there are kids that may not get the opportunity to do the same.

The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the first institution established for the sole purpose of conducting clinical research into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly cancer. They are also the largest childhood cancer research center in the world in terms of numbers of patients enrolled and successfully treated.

I will be accepting donations to present to the St. Jude on behalf of myself, my family and friends, and anyone else who wishes to do the same. The hospital’s daily operating costs are $1,216,247.00, which are primarily covered by public donation. If interested in contributing to the St. Jude Children’s Research Center please contact me at for more information.
