General Donation Request

The 8th Annual “Veterans Day Fishing Tournament”, for Veterans and supporting anglers, is soon approaching.  Held on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at Anna Point Marina, Lake Anna, Virginia, I anticipate this year to be yet another outstanding tournament. We regretfully cancelled last year’s tournament due to COVID 19 and hope this year we all can rebound and have a great day.

We have come a long way from our first tournament in 2013 with only 7 boats, to 2019 when we had a record 84 boats and became the largest tournament on the lake. The tournament weather was absolutely great, and 68 Veterans, 90 supporting anglers/donors, friends and families turned out for a fantastic day of fishing, comradery, celebration, competition and food.  $8400 in cash and prizes were awarded as well as $4120 in payout money. $420 was donated to The Reel American Heroes Foundation.

Retired, Active, or Reserve Military men and women are invited to compete in this Open style team bass tournament for cash and prizes, as are their supporting Patriots.

We had a total of 61 sponsors for the 2019 tournament and hope to see most of them back this year. To show your support, I ask that you consider a donation in the form of outdoor gear, fishing tackle,  gift cards, marine/boating equipment, certificates, hunting and fishing related products or cash.

To show your awareness that our Veterans are not forgotten for their service, your Company name/logo will appear on the Sponsor list flyer in October, social media, Facebook, our Website, Woods & Waters magazine, and at the actual tournament on our large sponsor banner.
