Jerseys for St Jude - Anglers Support Needed

One thing that has always impressed me about Anglers and those that work in the fishing industry, is the amount they are always willing to give back, in and outside of the industry. Recently I came across a great cause being run with the support of some great anglers that I just had to share with you.

"Jerseys for St. Jude is a fundraising event to benefit the St. Jude's Children's research hospital. This collaborative effort features EBay auctions for autographed tournament jerseys from some of the biggest names in the Industry. Each week in Feb and March a selection of Jersey will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the benefit of St. Jude's.

If you are not interested in owing a signed fishing jersey, donations are also welcome. For every $10 donation your name will be entered into a draw for some great prizes. As a member of the Dobyns team I'm proud to say that Gary has donated a Coalition series rod.. see what $10 can getcha!

This event is part of the 14th annual Dick Hiley/St. Judes Bass fishing tournament. To date the tournament alone has raised over $1 Million for the hospital.

If you are interested in donating funds or placing a bid on one of the Jerseys up for auction, please check out the below links.

Remember new jerseys will be available each week, so check back often. This week up for grabs there is also a gift certificate from RayJus Fish jerseys, they make a quality product and with tournament season fast approaching it is a great way to get your jersey made and support a great cause.

As Anglers we always preach "Take a Kid fishing", by supporting St Jude's we can help make sure more kids get healthy and get the chance to go fishing
