Toys for Troops Kids Bass Fishing Tournament 2012
Category : BASS TOURNAMENT NEWS
The annual Toys for Troops Kids Bass Fishing Tournament will be held on Saturday November 10th. The event will launch from Russo’s Marina on Bethel Island. The Christian Bass Anglers Fellowship (CBAF) has held this charity event for several years to collect toys for the kids of our military personal. Each participant is encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy.
Over the last few years we have collected an average of around 450 toys for our military families. The CBAF partners with the Toys for Troops Kids organization in the collection and distribution of the toys to local military basis. While we only ask for one toy from each boater we have seen truckloads of toys brought in by some. Some bass clubs make it an annual project and collect toys to donate.
Each year we are amazed at the generosity of the bass fishing community as they respond to make sure these kids have a great Christmas. Last year the toys were distributed to many children at Beal Air Force Base at their annual Christmas party. The kids were greeted by Santa taxying in on an F-16 fighter plan. You do not forget the smiles and excitement on the faces of these kids. This is the highlight of the year for these kids many of whose parents are deployed overseas. Each year we also make time to honor our service men and woman during the awards ceremony. Please plan on joining us this year.
