The Bass Fishing Hall of Fame engaged in a campaign to raise funds for a permanent bass fishing Hall of Fame in Cullman, Ala. They announced on Oct. 31, 2013 that PRADCO Fishing made a large cash donation to help push them closer to their next mandatory funding plateau.
“This generous contribution made by Pradco is providing the much-needed seed capital to help us move closer to the kickoff of our major fundraising efforts for the Hall,” said Donald Howell, board member and BFHOF capital campaign chairman. “With additional support from past inductees and our efforts with those in the fishing and boating industry, the vision and goals we have for a facility to celebrate the sport of bass fishing will be a reality.”
“PRADCO-Fishing is proud to support the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, and the credit for this donation goes to EBSCO and Chairman of the Board Jim Stephens and President Dixon Brooke,” said Bruce Stanton, Vice President and General Manager of PRADCO-Fishing. “EBSCO is very conscientious and supportive of the fishing industry and the promotion of the lifestyle of fishing. Preservation and conservation are a fabric of EBSCO’s culture, so the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame is a natural organization to support.”
EBSCO is the parent company of PRADCO-Fishing, manufacturers and marketers of famous brand names such as Booyah, Rebel, Yum, Bomber and Lindy.
