It’s official…we are up on Ebay selling signed B.A.S.S Elite jerseys, college angler jerseys, and other jerseys and memorabilia with all of the proceeds….EVERY DIME…going to Tackle The Storm Foundation to help buy the magic wands of childhood….fishing poles…for the children of the next storm. The final bid will be donated to the foundation, Don and Barb Barone will cover the costs of the Ebay and Paypal fees…when you can put a brand new rod and reel in a child’s hand for about $7.50 EVERY PENNY COUNTS so we are not going to have the fees come out of what we can buy for the kids.
Right now we have four items up for sale…all have multiple bids, and if the auctions ended tomorrow (they don’t) we could outfit almost 40 kids. So far at the two events we have put together we have put rods and reels in the hands of almost 500…FIVE HUNDRED…children. I’m humbled by that, stunned by that, and am an emotional basket case by that number. But unfortunately next season will bring more storms, and we will be ready for them, and for the kids.
