The second annual fundraising drive called Jerseys for St. Jude officially started on Sunday, Feb. 12 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The effort includes a series of tournament jersey auctions and drawing for many great prizes, and will last until the end of March.
Week No. 1 kicks off with eBay jersey auctions donated from many notable anglers, including recent FLW Tour Open champions Randall Tharp and Paul Elias, as well as Jonathon VanDam, Jay Yelas, Clark Wendlandt, Greg Bohannan and Jim Tutt.
Future weeks will include themed auctions: Classic Week, Western Week, FLW Week and more.
Anglers who donate a minimum of $10 to St. Jude through mystjudeevent.org/jersy4jude will receive entry into a drawing for a Dobyns Rod; Rapala, All-Terrain, and Team Johnson Fishing tackle packages; Rod Gloves; MinnKota / Humminbird swag; and gift certificates for G2 Gemini and Bass Tackle Depot. Additional prizes will be added in the coming weeks.

The mission of St. Jude is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. On average, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital touches the lives of more than 7,800 each year, regardless of a family’s ability to pay for treatment. St. Jude is currently celebrating 50 years of finding cures and saving children.
