Celebrating our 25th year, the “Catching Fish to Help Children Tournament”, hopes to be our best year yet! On May 31st, June 1st, 2nd and 3rd Striper Marina will be hosting another exciting year of our Striped Bass Tournament. Our longstanding theme remains “Catching Fish to Help Children” which will benefit The Make A Wish Foundation this year. As most of you know The Make A Wish Foundation is a nationwide organization that arranges experiences described as “wishes” to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Over the past 24 years our tournament has donated over $148,000 to the children’s shelters of Rhode Island! Unfortunately, after a quarter of a century of hosting the tournament, those shelters have been closed due to lack of funding by the state. We were very proud to have been a part of that worthwhile cause and we were so grateful for all your donations. It was an honor to present the Children’s Shelters of Rhode Island with a check on your behalf each year. We are now looking forward to working with The Make A Wish Foundation and granting wishes to those very brave and deserving children as well. There is a downloadable sponsor form as well as the entry form available under “documents” in the “about us” tab.
