Get out on Lake Erie for a day of fishing and help people with multiple sclerosis by signing up for the MS Walleye Fishing Tournament on June 6. Get a group of six friends, customers or co-workers to fill a boat. The fully stocked boat will set sail from the Midway Marina in Port Clinton.
Join more than 150 anglers as they participate in the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s 23nd annual Walleye Fishing Tournament. The anglers are treated to a continental breakfast before heading out to fish aboard a charter boat with a licensed charter boat captain at the helm. Each boat is stocked with food, beverages, bait and ice.
When the participants return in the afternoon, they take part in a light dinner and win some great prizes while their catch is being cleaned and bagged for them to take home. Prizes are awarded for first, second and third place for largest fish and stringer.
The cost for a boat with six people is $1,200. Individual tickets are also available for $250. After May 30, the price for a boat will increase to $1,300 and individual tickets will no longer be sold.
The money raised through the MS Walleye Tournament helps more than 20,000 Ohio residents living with multiple sclerosis. Funds are directed toward services like transportation, durable medical equipment loan, friendly-visitation programs for those who are homebound or hospitalized, and self-help groups. Funds also support research efforts at Ohio institutions like the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and The Ohio State University Medical Center where MS researchers are working to find the cause and a cure for the disease.
Join Presenting Sponsor Shamrock Companies, Inc., and other participants as they search for the elusive “big catch” all while fishing for a cure. For information, call Tony Bernard at 614-515-4608 or visit www.MSohiobuckeye.org.e.org.
