Open Bass Tournament to benefit Hospice of Southern Illinois | Community Spirit
MARION, IL (KFVS) - Bass fishing enthusiasts are encouraged to enter the Little Egypt Open Bass Tournament this spring to help raise money for the Hospice of Southern Illinois.
Organized by the Little Egypt Bass Club, this is the 43rd year for the tournament and the 10th year that proceeds have gone to the hospice.
This year's tournament will be March 31 and April 1 at Devil's Kitchen Lake. Organizers say two-person teams are forming now. The entry fee is $150 and entry forms are due to the Little Egypt Bass Club by March 30.
For over 30 years, the Hospice of Southern Illinois has provided care to over an estimated 28,000 patients and their families in the southern 27 counties, and because of the support of the community, and friends like Little Egypt Bass Club, they are able to continue the tradition of never billing a patient or their family.
For more information on the tournament or to get an entry form, you can contact Tournament Director George Dailey at 618-983-3690 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
