Oregon Tuna Classic - Garibaldi
Date and Time:
Friday, Aug. 22, 7:00 AM, to Saturday, Aug. 23, 7:00 AM
It all started in 2005 when a small group of fisherman joined together to steer their passion for fishing to a cause that would help feed the hungry. What culminated from this idea was the first Oregon Tuna Classic. Over the years others have recognized this cause and have joined to help create what the OTC is today. Each year the tournament has seen exponential growth. The cash contribution to the Oregon Food Bank has nearly doubled from year-to-year.
From sponsors who have donated cash and products to anglers who participate and donate their catch, The Oregon Tuna Classic is making a difference. All who participate, including board members, volunteer their time and energy allowing all the proceeds to benefit the Oregon Food Bank.
DATE: August 22 & 23, 2014
This year's event in Garibaldi marks the 10th year anglers have come together to help fight hunger in our communities. Along with special partner, Ducks Unlimited, OTC will be hosting the dinner, auction and awards ceremony on Saturday night. The dinner is open to the public, and folks are encouraged to join the fun regardless if they have participated in the competition.
Teams will be fishing both Friday and Saturday again this year, with the same revised prize structure developed last year. Participants can enter side pots for the chance to win big cash prizes! There is potential for $50,000+ to be up for grabs!
Canned food drive at the tent throughout the weekend.
