ST.JUDE FUNDRAISER (SAT. APRIL 14TH FARMINGTON LEGION)

4 posts in this topic

They have being putting this on for I think 6 years now it is a great time there are great give aways and awesome silent auction items. I would say 80 to 90% of the people that go are all bass fishermen, and it is for a great cause.

Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

“Beer Bash!”

Saturday, April 14

6-9pm

Farmington American Legion

Located ¼ mile North of Hwy 50 on Hwy 3

East side of Downtown Farmington

St. Jude is the nation’s premier research center for catastrophic childhood diseases. When St. Jude first opened in 1962, a child with leukemia had virtually no chance for survival. Today, thanks to the research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 90% of children with the most common form of leukemia can be cured. It treats children without regard to race, religion, creed or ability to pay. St. Jude covers all costs not covered by insurance. Families without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude relies almost solely on public donations; fund raising efforts like the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational are vital to the success of the hospital.

The Team of Trent Soberg of Lakeville and Keith Larson of Farmington are fishing the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational on May 5-6. All proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On behalf of St. Jude, Trent Soberg and Keith Larson, Thank You for supporting this cause.

$10.00 Donation

Free Beer

There will be Raffle and Silent Auction items. Remember all proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

*Tickets sold at door or in advance at Farmington American Legion

Wished I would have known about this sooner. I live in Farmington and St. Jude is a customer of my company. We do a lot of work with them.

My brother and them do it every year right around the same time so they will be doing it again next year I think they raised just over $5,000.

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
