PONCA CITY, Okla. (November 17, 2015) – The Future Fisherman Foundation announced today its annual online auction is scheduled for November 30-December 7. The auction will once again boast an impressive lineup of outdoor products and guided fresh and saltwater fishing trips.
This year’s event is headlined by a half day fishing trip with Forrest Wood Cup $Million Dollar Winner, Scott Suggs and reigning Classic Champion and Quantum Pro, Casey Ashley, plus lunch with Ranger Boats founder, Forrest L. Wood. They all offered to support the event that powers programs like Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs, and now interested bidders have a chance at once in a lifetime trips with fishing royalty!
“The number and quality of fishing trips from across the country on this year’s list are amazing, with many being hosted by top professional anglers and fishing celebrities,” Future Fisherman’s, Mark Gintert, said. “The thought of winning a trip with reigning Scott Suggs or Casey Ashley is unbelievable. Add in a potential lunch date with Forrest Wood and you have the making of a very special event for the F3 Foundation,” Gintert added.
The auction opens at 8am CST, November 30 and runs for seven days. Participation is easy; visit www.futurefisherman.org and click on the “F3 Auctions” tab. Then, follow the links to the eBay non-profit auction site for viewing and bidding on the items.
The prizes are awarded after the auction’s end so those who have purchased them as gifts will have them in time for Christmas.
The Foundation is still accepting donations for the auction. Those interested in providing fishing trips, products and memorabilia or who have questions can email [email protected] or call 580-765-9031.
All proceeds from the auction help the Future Fisherman Foundation’s efforts to engage today’s youth in positive lifestyle activities like fishing and the great outdoors.
