Skeet’s $10,000 Grand Prize Raffle

Several years ago, my family and I started doing a Skeet Reese Kid’s Fishing Day at a park in our community of Meadow Vista.  Because of projects and schedules, we haven’t been able to do it every year, but this year is going to be our fifth Kid’s Fishing Day.

There have always been two reasons we wanted to hold an event like this.  The first is because I love being able to share my love of the sport with kids.  If I had not fallen in love with fishing at an early age, I don’t know where I could have ended up; I certainly wouldn’t be a professional angler.  The other reason we wanted to do it was to do a fundraiser for charities in our community, and that has extended to charities that are near and dear to my heart across the country.

This year, as a part of the fifth Skeet Reese Kid’s Fishing Day, we are giving people across the country the chance to participate in a raffle to raise funds for the charities on our list.  This isn’t a short list of a few raffle prizes either – this is a winner take all $10,000 Grand Prize that people from all over the country can have a chance to win by purchasing a single $10 raffle ticket right here on my website.

My sponsors have kicked in to help by providing a giant package of prizes that will be included. It’s all stuff that I use every day when I’m fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series. 

Included in the $10,000 Grand Prize Package will be:

A LOWRANCE HDS9 Gen3 Touch Fishfinder
An 8’ Power-Pole Pro Series II Shallow Water Anchor
A Lucky Craft Lure Gift pack
Eagle Claw TroKar Hooks
Six Wright & McGill Co. Skeet Reese Tournament Series Rod and Victory II Reel combos
One HUK Next Level Rainsuit valued
Two Ranger Boats Inflatable PFD’s
One Mercury Tempest Propeller and Mercury Premium Plus Outboard Oil
Dick’s Sporting Goods Gift Cards
Berkley and Berkley Havoc Tackle Pack
And, one of my 2016 tournament worn, signed jerseys

All of the proceeds will go to help our favorite charities across the country and at home.

Tackle the Storm Foundation

Founded in 2011 following the storms that devastated much of Alabama, the Tackle the Storm Foundation exists to supply kids who have been displaced or their lives disrupted by storms with tackle to help them start fishing again which enables them to return to a sense of normalcy, and helps them start healing.

Youth Assistance Fund program

The Auburn Recreation District has provided the Youth Assistance Fund in an effort to provide programming for low-income individuals and families.  This fund can be used for all recreation department classes, camps, leagues and lessons.  Families who qualify receive 100% sponsorship.
The Youth Assistance Fund is supported entirely on donations and fund-raising events.  The Auburn Recreation District has never turned a child away and with continued community support, we never will.

Meadow Vista Friendly Neighbors

Our mission is to help less fortunate neighbors in our community and surrounding areas as well as to engage in activities that enhance the living environment of our communities.

Kids First Now

KidsFirst functions as a single point of entry for information and referrals to an array of family support programs and services.  We provide no-cost, friendly, accessible community hubs so families have a lasting network of wellness and support.  We foster support among families and strengthen parent/child interaction. We respond to crises and link families to needed services. We are decreasing the risks of child maltreatment and creating strong, vibrant communities.

Please consider buying a raffle ticket, it will help these worthy charities continue their missions of helping children experience love, fun and health.
