This has been a special year for the Howell family with the Bassmaster Classic win and all the great opportunities it’s provided. It has really given us a greater platform to tell others about Kings Home and all of the teenagers, kids and women with children that they serve. These are all people that have been abandoned, abused or neglected in the past and now they have been given HOPE at Kings Home. As you know, we have been blessed to represent them and help them raise funds by giving away my Triton/Mercury package 3 years in a row now! We have raised over $320,000 with the past three boats! Many of you were part of that blessing and we all appreciated it tremendously.
November 15th we will have our annual kids fishing event called Kampfire for the King at the Kings Home campus in Chelsea. This event is a big free pre-holiday outdoor event for kids and families. We will have over 10 Bassmaster high school fishing teams and several Bassmaster college teams on hand to help the kids catch fish to win prizes. Lots of these kids from the homes have never been fishing or caught their first fish, so we are excited to see the smiles that catching a fish can bring! The free fishing competition is open to everyone from 5-15 yrs old. The event starts at 9:00am with a “5K run against domestic violence” then the fishing begins at 10am-2pm. We will be giving the prizes to the winners on stage immediately following, and the event will end with the live streamed drawing to win my boat around 2:15-2:30.
This year, my Triton 21TRX is a big part of B.A.S.S. fishing history since it was the Bassmaster Classic winning “Good luck” boat!! It will be sad to see her leave my home in two weeks when we give her away November 15th at the “Kampfire for the King” event, but if she helps the kids at Kings Home by raising a new record amount of money, it will be worth it!
Please follow the link and go to Kingshome.com to donate today. Every $100 donation gets you a ticket in the drawing on November 15th. There is no limit on the amount of ticket donations you can buy. You don’t have to be present to win and you can watch the drawing live streamed on kingshome.com at 2:15pm central Nov.15th. and if I draw your name, I will be calling you from the stage! Good luck to all of you and thanks again for investing in the lives of so many in need at Kings Home!
