Dear Sponsor: 2007 Season
As the 2007 fishing season draws near, we at Illinois Bass Anglers are looking forward to our eighth year as a B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Club. Not only do we love to fish, but we are proud of the positive impact we have on our community through various public charity events. Our goal is to share our time and resources with children so that they may positively affect the next generation of fisherman.
As a B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Club we work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation who grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The BASS Federation Nation holds an annual raffle with the proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation as well as state and local conservation programs. In addition to selling raffle tickets, our club sponsors a local charity fishing tournament open to the public. This tournament benefits someone known to be afflicted with either Muscular Dystrophy or Multiple Sclerosis.
We hold an annual Kids’ Fishing Day, which is free and open to the public. Last year we had over 65 children participate. Our goal is to introduce kids to fishing and teach them good sportsmanship. There is a fishing contest as well as food and refreshments for all of the participants. As a gift, we give the first 65 kids their own rod, reel and tackle. In addition, awards are given to participants and contest winners. All of the food, prizes and fishing equipment are made possible by generous donations from our sponsors.
We need your help so that we can continue to provide these children’s events and charity fundraisers. Would you please consider sponsoring our club? Your donation can be made to the Illinois Bass Anglers. For your sponsorship of $100.00 or more we will list you as a sponsor on our website with a link to your website if you have one. If a non-monetary donation were preferable, a donation of goods that would help our Kids Fishing Day would be greatly appreciated. Every sponsor will receive a plaque at the end of the year.
With the help of our sponsors we can continue to grow as a community service organization.
We at the Illinois Bass Anglers Bass Club would like to thank you for support in helping us help kids experience the thrill of fishing.
